Here is more information about some of our job applicant screening processes. Some processes may not apply to all types of positions.

Criminal history check

The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles requires a criminal history check for all employees who perform transactions for customers covered under Florida statute chapters 207, 319, 320, and 328.

Illegal drug screening

The Manatee County Tax Collector's office is firmly committed to providing reliable, economic services to our customers and a safe, healthy workplace for our employees. In keeping with this commitment, we maintain a work environment free from illegal drug use and alcohol abuse. Individuals who fail the illegal drug screening when applying for a position that requires illegal drug screening will be disqualified from employment at our office.

Determination of eligibility to work in the United States

We use the U.S. government's E-Verify system to determine each applicant's eligibility to work in the United States. The E-Verify system verifies Form I-9 to prove identity and employment eligibility. For more information about E-Verify, visit the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services' E-Verify page.
