- Caregivers and care seekers are screened against Family Watchdog, the nation’s most comprehensive sex offender registry, with the information provided at registration.
- If identity can’t be authenticated or match is found through Family Watchdog, individual is immediately terminated and barred from joining Sittercity
- Ongoing, caregivers and care seekers are screened against Family Watchdog
Sittercity also strongly encourages all users to take an active part in vetting who will be right for their family, including conducting reference checks and interviews, as well as leveraging the background check tools that are accessible via the platform.
