One way to evaluate the quality of an employment screening firm is to check its Professional Background Screening Association (PBSA) Accreditation status. The program addresses information security, legal and compliance, client education, court and verification service standards, and general business practices. The firm should have detailed written policies and procedures. The PBSA standard requires employment screening firms to specifically address quality in the information they provide in three different clauses, which ensures every bit of information that is gathered is double-checked. Although all services differ, quality protocols should still be in place, such as systems checks and Federal, State, and Local IT system monitoring.
