Hello and thank you for entrusting me to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I will do everything I can to answer your question.

Using fingerprints is the easiest way to check for criminal records, which is why fingerprints are sometimes required in background checks. Unfortunately, there is nothing unlawful about requiring a fingerprint. I can certainly understand your hesitation, but there isn't really a way around it.

I hope that you find this information helpful. Please do not hesitate to let me know if you have any questions or concerns regarding the above and I will be more than happy to assist you further.
