Background Screening Best Practices

In this ebook, we will answer some of the more common questions that employers have about background checks to arm them with some information that might guide them in deciding whether to implement a screening tool in their current pre-hire process.

Background checks can provide potential employers with essential information about applicants that often is not revealed on an employment application. For example, a background check may reveal an applicant’s potential propensity for criminal behavior or issues in their driving history. They also might reveal potentially derogatory credit information, misrepresentations about an applicant’s educational background, or the names of prior employers the applicant omitted from their application or resume. Background checks can also help employers minimize the risk of negligent hiring or retention suits.
