Background screenings are an important part of the employment process. They help employers verify that new hires are who they say they are and that they have the qualifications and experience needed for the job. In today’s blog, NationSearch brings you more information about background screenings, how they can help your business, and more!

What Can Background Screenings Include?

Background screenings can include criminal background checks, credit checks, driving history, drug screening and employment history checks, among others. Employers may also use social media and other online sources to screen candidates.

Why Are Background Screenings Important?

Background screenings are an important tool for ensuring a safe and productive workplace. They help employers avoid hiring individuals with a history of violence, theft, or other illegal activity. Background screenings can also help identify employees who may be at risk for fraud or other financial crimes.

At What Point in the Hiring Process Should You Conduct a Background Check?

Ideally, after you have chosen the applicant that fits your needs, offer the applicant the job contingent upon the results of the background and drug screening.  No need to waste money on a background check prior to knowing if you’ve found the right candidate. Once you have the information you are seeking…a clean drug and background screening result…you can continue your on-boarding process.

Depending upon the depth of the search package requested, the results usually don’t take long to return.  Averagely, NationSearch completes background checks the same day as submitted.

Additionally, we recommend that as a part of your on-boarding process, you include a signature document that gives you, the employer, the ability to randomly background check your employee at will, throughout their years of employment with you.

How Can You Screen Candidates Legally?

When conducting background screenings, it’s important to follow all applicable laws and regulations. The Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) establishes guidelines for how employers can use consumer reports, such as credit reports and criminal background checks.
