Do F-2 visas need a criminal background check for new uni job?

I have an F-2 Visa. I will try to get a Uni job next spring. Does an F-2 Visa holder need to obtain the criminal background check, diploma, and transcripts when applying to a new job? 

I expect that (like every single ESL forum regarding this topic) there will be more than one contradictory answer so it would be great to know a number or website where I can confirm the answers

Thanks

Your best bet would be to ask people on this site. Some would know from personal experience.

There is no requirement from immigration for these documents.

However many universities will ask to see the things you listed anyway.  

Every university is different so you will only know after you apply, what hoops they will want you to jump through.
