Rise licensing requires that all Rise employees must pass a Department of Human Services background check with fingerprinting since our organization serves vulnerable populations and you may be working with confidential data. During the final stage of the interview process or after an offer is given, you must complete the Rule 11 background form and provide a copy of your ID which will be submitted to Human Resources. HR will then send a voucher for payment to get fingerprinted at one of the following location. We recommend going to the UPS stores as these stores seem to be the most efficient.
