Background Checks

Background Check Training

A background check is basically a thorough and complete search of someone's recorded history.

An employment screening background check can verify specifics about an applicant or employee. For instance, his or her credentials, degrees, work history, years and graduation dates of schools attended, driving history, credit history, and criminal history.

Background checks allow hiring entities to verify if people are who they claim to be. They also help protect employers from lawsuits when people are not who they claim to be. For instance, would an organization typically want to hire someone with three DUIs to be a school bus driver? Essentially, it helps define how honest, trustworthy, and truthful a person.

But laws do not allow you to just do background checks at random. It is important for employers to kow what laws regulate background checks, including the requirements to performing a background check.
