Background Check Fees Increase as Part of NYS Budget Plan

Last month, as part of the 2019-2020 New York state budget plan, legislation approved a measure to broaden federal gun control in a new bill, titled, “The Enhanced Background Checks Act of 2019”.

In accordance with this measure, The New York State Office of Court Administration (OCA) which provides a New York Statewide criminal history record search (CHRS) has raised its background check fee from $65.00 to $95.00 – That’s more than a 40% hike.

You can avoid this fee increase when using Fingercheck by easily running background checks directly from our dashboard. Don’t think you need background checks when hiring? Well, here are some facts that should make you think otherwise.
