Due to the fact that the State of Utah criminal court cases have a very limited presence in all nationwide criminal databases (i.e., Department of Corrections and maybe a few counties), this real-time search offers all misdemeanor and felony cases filed in Utah state courts via CORIS courts case management program.
- Felonies and misdemeanors court cases are updated daily
- Turnaround time is 24 hours or less
- Price $20.00 + Repository Fee

If your applicant has resided in the state of Utah, it is strongly recommended to order this statewide search as it is more cost-effective than ordering individual county court criminal searches in order to meet FCRA requirements. We are one of a few background screening companies that subscribe to Utah’s Xchange court documentation system. Before ordering a Utah criminal background check, please read about Utah background check restriction in FCRA tab below.
Employment Screening Laws in Utah
However, employers in Utah are technically allowed to inquire about arrest records.
In other words, prospective employees must initiate and obtain their own criminal background check and deliver our report to their potential employers. To protect the report’s integrity from any tampering, they can sign a release form to have us send the Utah criminal background check directly to their employer. We can accommodate that demand by having the employer send a background check request link directly from within their own account in order for your applicant to self-screen and pay us directly. Once the criminal history report is completed, it is securely uploaded to your account as well as a copy sent to your applicant. During this process, the applicant will electronically sign all FCRA forms.
There is no Ban-the-Box policy in effect for private employers, yet.
Remember that an employer must always consider EEOC guidance when making a hiring decision. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) calls for companies to conduct an Individualized Assessment based on the nature of the offense and how it relates to the job position prior to automatically disqualifying an employment applicant based on their past criminal records history.
When determining whether a criminal offense would disqualify a potential employment candidate, employers must give consideration to:
- The nature and gravity of the criminal offense
- How much time has passed since the offense or sentence
- The nature of the job (including where it is performed, how much supervision and interaction with others the employee will have, etc.)
The EEOC has stated that employers ought to give job seekers with a criminal record the opportunity to explain the circumstances and provide mitigating information showing that the employee should not be excluded based on the nature of the offense.
