Do I need a signed legal release from the nanny to begin his/her background check?

No, Childcare Background Search will obtain your candidate’s release through either our online web form or through a separate document that we will send to you if your candidate does not have an email address. In order to be compliant with Federal law, we cannot start the investigation without this signed form. We ask that our client families notify the nanny of the investigation and request her to be cooperative when contacted.
