Background screen employees, volunteers and residents confidently with our resident and pre-employment background check expertise. Build a unique, robust solution with our configurable suite of services to help minimize risk and maintain compliance.
Criminal Pre-Employment Background Screening Services
We provide criminal background check services to help you uncover relevant criminal records, sex offenses and professional or financial sanctions quickly and as part of your employment background checks or resident screening.
- Our National Criminal File is a database search of millions of criminal records, with 6000 to 8000 new records added daily, covering 50 states, plus sex offender registry records from 50 states (depending on state access availability), plus Washington D.C. and Guam.
- In addition, we have an unmatched global reach for businesses that require global searches.
We provide background screening services which confirm or verify immigration status as well as professional and educational backgrounds of applicants efficiently. As the largest background screening provider in the world, we have one of the highest verification rates in the industry.
Licenses & Credentials
Our employee screening services confirm vital professional qualifications. We contact the associated state government, granting source or issuing agency directly to check the status, sanctions, restrictions and expiration date of any license or credential that candidate has listed.
Contractor, Vendor & Temporary Staff Screening
Hold your contingent workforce to the same standards as your employees through pre-employment background checks. Whether they work directly with your organization or come to you through a third party, they become the face of your organization to consumers and other businesses, often working alongside your employees. Knowing your contingent workforce is just as qualified as your employees can protect the integrity of your business.
Executive Background Screening
Minimize risk and potentially negative media exposure by thoroughly vetting those you would entrust with your business at the highest levels. Our Executive Advantage background screening product:
- Provides a detailed, C-level employment background check to give you a clear picture before you make a hiring decision.
- Verifies all aspects of credentials and information not necessarily included in resumes, including: civil litigation including bankruptcy, negative media searches, corporate and regulatory history.
Social Media Search
Social media searches can provide a good deal of job-related information to help you make smarter hiring and management decisions, as well as helping you understand whether a candidate or employee will extend or detract from your mission and values as an organization.
Our partner, Fama, uses artificial intelligence and customizable search criteria to comb through publicly available social media channels, including Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, along with a comprehensive news and web search to provide a more complete view of who a person really is.
Our social media searches are FCRA, EEOC, and GDPR compliant.
Criminal Records Watch
Criminal Records Watch enables companies to better protect their brands, workplaces and relationships from risk by providing alerts to employers whenever an employee or contractor has a reportable criminal records history after they begin working for the employer. This gives employers the opportunity to initiate intervention or adverse action, without waiting for a periodically scheduled re-screen.
Criminal Records Watch is ideally suited to monitor those positions that require an additional level of trust or certification, particularly those in the healthcare, education, and financial services industries. It is also particularly relevant to transportation and fleet services, as it also alerts an employer to any motor vehicle violations.
This product is FCRA compliant and can be purchased as an add-on or standalone service.
