Background Check

CWU contracts with a company called HireRight to conduct background* (BG) checks on all employees. Your supervisor should send you as a Finalist online so that HR can initiate the BG check.  You will receive an email in your CWU email account from with a secure user name and password from HireRight.

When you receive the notification to complete the on-line authorization, please do so as soon as possible. (Personal data such as SSN and address will be required; this information is valid to the process and you may be assured that HireRight will keep your personal information secured.)

*NOTE:  You may not start working until the background check has been cleared.
