Employee Background Checks


An alarming number of resumes and employment applications contain false and misleading information. Background checks, pre-employment screening and employee screening is vital to protecting your company and your employees. Not only will we provide you with a comprehensive background report on the candidate, we will also search credit reports on candidates who will have financially sensitive responsibilities to find financial patterns and difficulties. Credit reporting is done in strict compliance with the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA). Employers have a duty of due diligence in hiring, and if their hiring practices cause harm to co-workers or members of the public, an employer can be sued for negligent hiring.
