I just had a background check for another agency, why do I have to do it again?

Yes you will need to have it done for each employer.  There are two main reasons for being asked to do another background check. The first is there are legal issues regarding the sharing of background checks, especially if time has lapsed. Secondly, each LiveScan data record is tied to the specific agency requesting it when it was transmitted. Thus, there is no way to pull up the information, copy it, modify it or resend it. You must come in and complete a new LiveScan background check. And yes, you will have to pay another fee.
