What does the background check look at?

For the safety of our users, every provider is screened for criminal offenses. Takl’s criminal background check is provided by a third party and includes national and county-level databases, and when necessary, local courthouse record checks stretching back a minimum of 7 years.  Determinations on whether an individual is eligible to become a provider on the Takl platform are made on a case by case basis.  A provider, however, will be ineligible to accept job requests on the Takl platform if, among other things, the background check results reveal convictions for any of the following: 

- a felony
- a sexual offense
- a violent crime
- certain drug-related offense
- certain theft
- certain property damage offenses 
Takl reserves the right to disqualify a provider at any time should their background check reveal any of the above items, or for any other safety-related reason at Takl's sole discretion.
If you do not pass your background check, you'll receive a copy via email and instructions for how to contest the results.
