F.S. 166.0442
166.0442 Criminal history record checks for certain municipal employees and appointees.Notwithstanding chapter 435, a municipality may require, by ordinance, employment screening for any position of municipal employment or appointment which the governing body of the municipality finds is critical to security or public safety, or for any private contractor, employee of a private contractor, vendor, repair person, or delivery person who has access to any public facility or publicly operated facility that the governing body of the municipality finds is critical to security or public safety. The ordinance must require each person applying for, or continuing employment in, any such position or having access to any such facility to be fingerprinted. The fingerprints shall be submitted to the Department of Law Enforcement for a state criminal history record check and to the Federal Bureau of Investigation for a national criminal history record check. The information obtained from the criminal history record checks conducted pursuant to the ordinance may be used by the municipality to determine an applicant’s eligibility for employment or appointment and to determine an employee’s eligibility for continued employment. This section is not intended to preempt or prevent any other background screening, including, but not limited to, criminal history background checks, that a municipality may lawfully undertake.
