Background Grading Scale

When the DCC conducts criminal history checks, it uses a grading scale from 0-7 that corresponds to offenses as it pertains to the consortium (site access) background orders.

0Clear Record
1Non-Violent Misdemeanors
2Violent Misdemeanors
3Lesser Felonies
4Felonies in 3 and Misdemeanors in 2
5Higher Felonies
6Felonies in 5 and Misdemeanors in 2
7Patriot Act Hits

Only the employee, employer, and the TPA conducting the background screen will be able to access their grade. This helps set higher standards for employers that are hiring in the safety-sensitive industry as it prevents individuals with certain criminal histories from entering restricted worksites.

Owners set the maximum background screen grade for their worksite using the grading scale above. E.g., If an owner sets their grading scale maximum at 3, then any contractor with a grade of 4 or higher would not be eligible to access that site. On the other hand, contractors with a grade of 0-3 would meet the background screening requirements and be eligible to access that site.

Note: This may also be dependent on industry regulations and standards.
