Please explain in detail what you mean by contact,
Fl is an at will State meaning an employer is allowed to terminate any employee without notice and and any time for any reason,
Fl, also limits its regulations on employers, in terms of contacting prospective applicants,
FL does not force employers to do this,
However, it is good practice that employers justify in writing why some applicants were contacted and some were not, to avoid any potential discrimination lawsuit.
Certain jobs within the state of Florida require background checks to be performed on prospective employees. Most health care jobs and positions of employment that work with the elderly, children or the disabled require background checks. Florida Statute(NNN) NNN-NNNNrequires screening of all mental health personnel. State government and public office positions also require background checks for employment.
