Background Checks Broadly Defined

Background checks are run by prospective employers to verify information provided by candidates. The investigation of these details determines if the candidate is qualified for the position, and if they’re a good fit for the company. Through a comprehensive Background Check, employers avoid circumstances that could prove costly.

Information Found in a Background Check

The key focus of a background check is analyzing the candidate’s criminal background. The screening or check identifies all convictions associated with the candidate. It also presents criminal infractions for which they were charged but weren’t convicted. Some employers prefer candidates without any criminal records; however, the screening isn’t so much about the records found, but the nature of the crimes. It helps evaluate the risks associated in hiring the candidate.

Employment and Education Verification

The candidate’s complete employment and educational background appear on these reports. It enables the employer to verify the details provided by the candidate on their resume or application. It includes information such as prior employers, dates, positions held and eligibility of rehire. It also includes education level achieved along with dates and all programs and certifications achieved.

Driver’s License and Motor Vehicle Records

Job positions that require the candidate to drive for the employer require information about their driving record and status of their driver’s license. A background screening shows their record of any auto accidents, moving violations and litigation. The type of driver’s license the candidate holds is also verified through a MVR search.

Credit History

The employer accesses the candidate’s credit history through the background screening. They have access to one or more of the three credit bureaus to acquire this information. A credit history is needed to identify any financial risk associated with the candidate. A poor credit rating is a clear indication of a potential financial loss for the company.

Background Check Turn Around Time

The turnaround time for background checks vary greatly. Generally, a nationwide criminal background screening is completed within one day. However, certain elements could slow down the process. The need to investigate adverse information ensuring accuracy increases the wait time. The retrieval of any employment or educational records increases the waiting time for reported results. Additionally, backlogged courts slow processing of court documents. The backlogs may present hindrances that limit access to the files until they are updated.

Adherence to the FCRA

Employers are required by law to obtain a signed consent form from the candidate before performing a background check. The consent form needs to be separate from any other document. They need a request form completed by the candidate to obtain all transcripts, financial aid documents, and additional degree program data. Additionally, privacy laws prohibit access to military records for all members of the armed forces. The employer must acquire separate legal consent to access these files.

During the assessment, the employer cannot request information related to the candidate’s race, religion, sexual orientation, or gender. Employers who make decisions about employment associated with these details is in violation of federal employment laws. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission penalizes any employers who commit these violations. http://thescreeningsource.com

The Rise Of Negligent Hiring

The effects of proper vetting through Background Checks will help to protect your business from negligent hiring. Thorough investigation, especially the examination of criminal records is key to preventing negligent hiring. In addition, background checks provide other intangible effects such as higher employee morale and preservation of company branding.

A primary objective of background checks is to prevent a bad hiring decision, i.e., an employee with attributes that can damage the workplace through poor job performance or criminal proceedings.

Detecting unfit employees through background checks can help prevent litigation. If an employer does not exercise proper due diligence, the employer can be sued for negligent hiring. If the employer does not end, discipline or adequately supervise an employee’s behavior after learning that the person is dangerous or unfit, the company can be sued for negligent retention.

By running background checks on candidates through The Screening Source, LLC., employers exercise due diligence in protecting their employees from workplace violence, theft, fraud and other crimes.

Reviewing an Applicant's Federal Criminal History

Federal Criminal Background Checks define whether or not the individual is listed on the federal government's watchlist. The most common infractions found within these searches are associated with deception for financial gains. They include but are not limited to fraud and embezzlement. A federal assessment is needed if the applicant is attempting to work in any section of the United States government or if a federal-level security clearance is needed for employment.
