By conducting employment screening, you can safeguard your company from the risks associated with hiring untrustworthy employees. In addition, by having a screening policy in place, you will encourage job applicants to be more forthcoming and honest on their resumes and in applications. An employee background check reviews a candidate’s criminal records, driving records, and whether they are on a terror watch list or sex offender registry. It may also include a check of credentials and credit background check.
Let’s face it: understanding and running background checks on new employees can be daunting and stressful.
