A criminal records employment background check helps your company in ensuring a safe workplace, protecting assets, and mitigating risks. Furthermore, companies must perform this procedure to comply with applicable laws and to avoid costly negligent hiring lawsuits.
If your candidate has been convicted of a felony or serious misdemeanor, you’ll want to know the details. A criminal record employee background check digs into the criminal history of the candidate from a wide range of county, state, and federal court records both available online and through person-to-person contact to ensure a comprehensive report. These sources include district courts, Department of Corrections, sex offender registries and Interpol public records, criminal record databases, and state police departments, among others.
An employee criminal records check is not something you can DIY. Aside from the time-consuming process of having to search all states and county databases that your company may not be adept to do, you also run the risk of violating any applicable laws related to the limitations of conducting a criminal records check. Furthermore, your local legislation may require that the more comprehensive criminal records check should only look into the records related to the job position. Thus, you should entrust this procedure to the employee background check professionals.
