One of several ways organizations within the Seventh-day Adventist Church in North America can prevent the employment of known sexual predators within our organizations is by running an insurability report through ARM. Prior to an organization completing the hiring process for an individual, they should engage in a thorough background screening process, to include criminal background screening, effective reference checking, and checking with ARM to make sure the individual is indeed, insurable.
The process is simple. To initiate a report from ARM, email firstname.lastname@example.org with full names (to the best of your knowledge) and the date of birth of the potential hire. ARM will turn the request around within three business days. If the potential hire in question is deemed “not insurable and/or key individuals need extra time for background research, it may take up to two additional weeks before a response is released. “Together we can prevent future victims if we follow a system to share information about past employee behavior,” says ARM President and CEO, James Winegardner.
