Atlantic welcomes Maria Heim as Compliance Manager

Due to the constantly changing and expanding Federal, state and regional regulations of data and security for the distribution and use of background screening information, Atlantic is pleased to welcome Maria Heim, PHR for Atlantic’s newly created role of Compliance Manger.   Maria brings over 16 years of compliance and human resources experience from the banking and medical industries.  Utilizing Maria’s EEOC, SEC, OIG, SHRM and many other experiences, Atlantic is planning to take a more aggressive and mutually proactive compliance relationship to further protect us both.  I hope you will join me in welcoming Maria and please do not hesitate to reach out to her with your employee screening compliance questions as 877-747-2104 X6015 or mheim@atlanticscreening.com.  Thank you.

Applicant Middle Names or Initials Now Required

In an ongoing effort to enhance accuracy and compliance, starting April 2016, Atlantic’s Gateway 2.0 system will require a middle name or initial to complete an order. If an applicant does not have a middle name, there will be a box that once selected, will override the requirement by validating there is no middle name.

As it has been publicly announced by the NAPBS that the Federal Trade Commission’s main focus for 2016 will be on matching criteria and ensuring accurate identifiers are used for applicant processing, this requirement is a crucial step to ensure accuracy. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns.

Atlantic Offers Compliant Health Care Employee Screening

In addition to the full employment background screening services that have always been offered, Atlantic can now help keep your Health Care company in compliance with The US Department of Health & Human Services, Office of The Inspector General. If your company receives any Federal Health Care dollars, the OIG requires monthly & ongoing monitoring of all employees, through State and Federal exclusions and sanctions lists as well as State licensures. Atlantic can automate the entire process through its new F.A.C.I.S.(R) system.
