Please contact us at any time to check the status of your background check.
When background check are performed on you it may include public records. Examples of public records are professional license verifications, driving records, court records of criminal and/or civil cases, and sanctions searches.
Every employer has specific background screening requirements based on their industry, regulations, type of positions they hire for, etc. Most employment background checks include a criminal record search to determine if the candidate has been convicted of a crime. Other common requirements may include: past education and employment history, driving records, verification of professional licenses, and drug testing.
Most background checks are completed within 4-5 working days, but there can be certain circumstances that cause delays in the process. Some common delays are related to court closures or unresponsiveness by past employers or academic institutions. The longer the check takes to finish, there is a greater risk of losing the candidate as it shows that their information couldn’t be verified swiftly.
Every company has their own hiring criteria, generally the mere presence of a conviction will not exclude you from being hired. Most employers conduct an individual analysis before determining eligibility for employment.
When your prospective employer starts your background check, you will be asked to sign a written authorization permitting them to run a background check. You may need to keep information handy such as driver’s license number, educational background (institution attended, dates attended, degree earned, etc.), and past employment history (name of former employers, dates of employment, reason for leaving).
Most companies request an SSN Trace as the first screening run in any background check. This screening returns a list of your previous addresses, and any other names you may have used based on your credit and banking history. Your SSN will be truncated and encrypted in our protected databases.
The Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) is a federal law that governs how companies order and consider consumer reports, (including background checks). Enforcement of the FCRA is overseen by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB). The law was enacted to promote the accuracy, fairness, and privacy of consumer information contained in the files of consumer reporting agencies. To that end, it provides safeguards and rights for consumers like you.
