Many applicants make false claims on their job applications/resumes or have been involved in criminal activity which they may not disclose.

Background101, one of the nation’s leading pre-employment and existing employee screening services features the latest technology, FCRA compliant professionals and secure data to protect your business.

Negligent hiring damages are costing companies billions.

**Twenty three major retailers apprehended over 1.1 million shoplifters and dishonest employees and recovered over $189 million from these thieves in 2012, according to the 25th Annual Retail Theft Survey conducted by Jack L. Hayes International. **Over $50 million was recovered from employee apprehensions in 2012, up 7.0% from 2011.

**One in every 40 employees was apprehended for theft from their employer in 2012.

Conducting background screening on employees has become a matter of necessity for employers for several reasons.

Many applicants make false claims on their job applications/resumes or have been involved in criminal activity which they may not disclose. If you want to ensure a secure workplace and avoid negligent hiring lawsuits, the amount you would pay to pre-screen your applicants is very small compared to the legal fees or losses you could incur.

Failure to screen current and prospective employees can cost organizations of all sizes a significant outlay of cash and resources. Performing regular re-screening of employees is essential to the protection of every business. An individual’s personal situation can change at any time. By putting a screening program in place, risk will be minimized while monitoring changes at all levels.
