the fbi is building a national watchlist that gives companies real time updates on employees

FOR RELEASE SATURDAY, AUGUST 13, 2016, AT 12:01 A.M. EDT.- David Gerulski, Integrated Biometrics vice president, sales and marketing and Lauren Santilli, marketing director for Integrated Biometrics, talk about the Spartanburg-based company's fingerprint scanning devices that use a patented film. The patented film is durable, light and efficient, and can be used anywhere with little setup, allowing for portable FBI-certified fingerprint scanners to be used anywhere.

“Rap Back has been advertised by the FBI as an effort to target individuals in “positions of trust,” such as those who work with children, the elderly, and the disabled. According to a Rap Back spokesperson, however, there are no formal limits as to “which populations of individuals can be enrolled in the Rap Back Service.” Civil liberties advocates fear that under Trump’s administration the program will grow with serious consequences for employee privacy, accuracy of records, and fair employment practices.”
