I have a question to anyone out there, the plant manager here at our flexible plastics facility asked a question about background checks and food defense. With a background check are we looking for something in particular that would be a red flag that there is the potential for security issues? And what would those issues or red flags be? I don't know if this was clear, the plant manager was curious because with GMP the auditors looked into the fact that we had a food defense plan and that we performed background checks on potential new hires. Now going into IFS PACsecure he wondered if the background check was going to be looked at more closely and if there were any specifics that he should look for in the background check.
We have a food defense plan in place and we state that we do the background checks on all potential new hires. I guess the plant manager just wonders if a candidate should be excluded because of a criminal record, without any legal ramifications. Any information that someone has would be greatly appreciated.
