As Hire Image previously reported, “Miya’s Law,” codified under Fla. Stat. § 83.515, was signed into law on June 27, 2022. While some portions of the law went into effect on July 1, 2022, the remaining portions take effect on January 1, 2023. The new law requires Florida landlords to run background checks on all employees using a background screening company in accordance with the federal Fair Credit Reporting Act, effective January 1, 2023. The search must include a screening of criminal history records and sexual predator and sexual offender registries of all 50 states and the District of Columbia. Further, the law allows landlords to disqualify applicants convicted of certain crimes.
Hire Image strives to be your trusted background screening resource. If you have any questions about how to best protect your business, employees, tenants, and customers, please reach out at firstname.lastname@example.org.
