FSU's Background Check Policy (reference Section B.1.b.) requires background checks for Graduate Assistants (GAs) only when certain duties are performed. Policy does not require background checks be conducted for all GAs. Duties which require a background check can be found on the “Duties Requiring Background Checks” Page.
Contingent language : Contingent language should be included in the original offer letter to provide the GA adequate notice that a background check may be required of his/her appointment at any time based upon assigned duties.
