Also known as a "Rap Sheet", an FBI Background Check includes a summary of an individual's criminal history. The information in this report is collected by federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies. Although any company may require an FBI Background Check as an employment condition, only you can request a copy of your criminal history from the FBI.
