Criminal record check
Getting proof of background check can enhance your chance of getting Handyconnect jobs if you are planning to work with children and the elderly. A criminal record check is the proof that you have not been charged or convicted of a crime. If your job requires criminal check, there are two ways to get a report that you can upload to your profile: Name-based criminal record checks using names and dates of birth and a fingerprint search of the National Repository of Criminal Records. It is also known as a police certificate, background check, record check, or reference check.

Vulnerable sector check
Getting proof of vulnerability check can enhance your chance of getting Handyconnect jobs if you are planning to work with children and the elderly. Our partners must make the request for a vulnerable sector check if the intended job meets the requirements of the Criminal Records Act. People who volunteer or have jobs where they are in positions of trust or authority over children or vulnerable persons can be asked to obtain a vulnerable sector check. To meet the legal requirements for a vulnerable sector check, the nature of the job – not the person – must cause the person to have authority over, or trust of, children or vulnerable persons. Children are defined as being anyone under the age of 18. Vulnerable persons are people who, because of their age, disability or other circumstance, are more vulnerable than others.
The decision to request a vulnerable sector check is made by the hiring company, individual or volunteer organization. For more support on vulnerable sector check, please contact us by email at Contactus@Handyconnect.ca and you can also complete this check through this link
