Thank you for your cooperation in completing your pre-employment processing and congratulations again on your offer of employment.

Step 1

Offer and Scheduling Pre-Employment Processing Appointment

Once an offer has been made and accepted, a Human Resources Representative will set a pre-employment and employee health appointment. Each applicant is extended a conditional offer of employment and must pass all aspects of the pre-employment process.

Step 2

Background Check Authorizations

A pre-employment background investigation will be conducted on candidates for whom an offer of employment is being considered. You will receive the electronic authorization via email for the background screening. Please complete the form in order to start the background check process. In addition, Human Resources will also conduct two employment reference checks as a part of the pre-employment process.
Employment Eligibility Verification

Federal law requires that Broward Health document and verify the identity and employment authorization of each new employee (regardless of immigration status) hired after November 6, 1986 to ensure authorization to work in the United States. Documentation of eligibility to work in the United States will be required as a condition of employment. Candidates must present documentation proving eligibility for employment in the United States. Please see the Form I-9, instructions, and acceptable document list below. Broward Health participates in E-verify.
