17-2234. Department of credit unions; supervision; employees; attorney; security background check. (a) (1) There is hereby established the state department of credit unions, which shall be under the administrative supervision of the administrator as directed by law. The administrator may appoint or employ an attorney to assist the department in its functions under this act, and in accordance with the civil service law, such special assistants, deputies or examiners, and other employees, as may be necessary for the purpose of administering and enforcing the provisions of this act.

(2) The administrator is hereby authorized to appoint financial examiners and other staff who shall be in the unclassified service under the Kansas civil service act. The administrator's salary schedule for unclassified positions shall be reported to the credit union council annually.

(b) Nothing in subsection (a) shall affect the classified status of any person employed with the department of credit unions on the day immediately preceding the effective day of this act.

(c) Each special assistant, deputy, examiner and other such employees as may be necessary for the purpose of administering and enforcing the provisions of this act shall submit to a security background check prior to being employed in such position. Upon the commencement of the interview process, every candidate shall be given a written notice that a security background check is required. The security background check shall be limited to criminal history record information as provided by K.S.A. 22-4701 et seq., and amendments thereto. If the criminal history record information reveals any conviction of crimes of dishonesty, such conviction may be used to disqualify a candidate for any position within the office of the department of credit unions. If the criminal history record information is used to disqualify a candidate, the candidate shall be informed in writing of that decision. Upon determining whether to hire or disqualify a candidate, the candidate's criminal history record information report shall be destroyed. The candidate's personnel file shall only contain a statement that a security background check was performed and the date thereof.

(d) The state department of credit unions shall submit an employment candidate's fingerprints to the Kansas bureau of investigation and to the federal bureau of investigation for the purpose of determining whether the applicant has a criminal record.
