Why Conduct Sanction Screening?
By hiring a sanctioned individual you are placing yourself at risk in a number of different ways.
- Know who you are hiring. Without a full sanction check on new employees you are running the risk of hiring a fraud.
- By hiring a sanctioned individual, you are at risk! Organizations like the OIG will not stand for organizations hiring sanctioned individuals and will fine up to $10,000 for each violation.
- You place yourself at risk of fraud.By hiring a sanctioned individual, you are allowing a someone who has previously been found to have committed some form of fraud to enter your organization and possibly commit the same crimes.
What do we Screen?
There are a number of different organizations that sanction individuals for posing a threat to their programs integrity for either fraud or misconduct. Some of the organizations we screen against are:
- OFAC. By not screening against the OFAC Sanction List, there could be serious consequences such as a transfer of funds, an enforcement action against your organization, and or negative publicity.
- SDN. An individual or entity that has been sanctioned by the SDN has usually had their assets blocked and U.S. persons are generally prohibited from dealing with them. By working with them you are placing yourself at risk of those consequences as well.
- FSE. OFAC publishes a list of foreign individuals and entities determined to have violated, attempted to violate, conspired to violate, or caused a violation of U.S. sanctions on Syria or Iran pursuant to Executive Order 13608. Any transactions done with these individuals or entities is extremely prohibited.
- FDA Debarment List. The FDA Debarment List is a list of individuals or entities that have been found to have a history of criminal conduct, relating to development or approval of a drug product, that prevent an individual from engaging in similar activities.
- State Sanctions. Many states have their own agencies that hand out their own sanctions that might not make it to a federal database. However, to conduct business in those states it is necessary for you to run the appropriate screens and checks. We can assess the needs of your organization and help you conduct the needed screening.
- Employee Misconduct, Nurse Registries and Others. Almost every state has their own employee misconduct and nurse registries. It is extremely important that you check every state registry before you hire a nurse to ensure that they have not had sanctioned placed against them or their licensure.
