Pre-Employment Screening is the process employers utilize prior to offering a candidate a job or during the hiring process. To obtain certain information, you must have a permissible purpose which in this case would be the intention to hire.
The types of screenings companies utilize during this process include criminal record checks, credit reports, employment history verification, education verification, and driving record checks. You must have a signed release from the applicant to conduct the screening. Please remember your screening policy should be consistent throughout your organization.
Each report is managed from start to finish by an experienced analyst. The analyst utilizes a variety of trusted sources to locate information that may potentially affect recommendations, placement or hiring decisions. Thorough public record searches, open source intelligence information, credential and professional certification verifications provide a comprehensive analysis of a candidate’s background.
