There can be serious consequences if proper vetting of new hires is not thoroughly conducted, and most companies realize that it is best to involve a partner who is experienced with the employee background check process.
Sacramento, CA (PRWEB) August 31, 2016
Background Profiles, an NAPBS Accredited employee screening and background check service, is proud to announce an update to its information page on employee criminal background checks. The upgrade, part of a comprehensive new website, adds fresh information about this background check service for employers in many industries. Proper vetting of potential hires via a criminal background check can prevent wrong employment decisions and limit employer liability.
"There can be serious consequences if proper vetting of new hires is not thoroughly conducted, and most companies realize that it is best to involve a partner who is experienced with the employee background check process," explained Scott Moran, CEO of Background Profiles. "This update to the criminal background check information page lets companies' hiring managers get up to speed quickly regarding the services we can provide, and alerts them to all aspects of the multiple layers of jurisdictions that need to be considered."
An Update to Information on Employee Criminal Background Check Services
One of Background Profiles’ special areas of service is in conducting employee criminal background checks, both for current employees as well as pre-employment criminal background checks for potential hires. For a variety of reasons, not the least of which is potential legal exposure, employers need to know if a potential hire has a criminal record. However, full due diligence in an employee criminal background check is not easy because not only does one have to meet legal or regulatory requirements but also one must search multiple levels of criminal records on a potential employee.
The newly updated page details some of the levels of government records that must be dealt with, including:
County Level Criminal Records Search
- This includes superior, upper, lower, and/or municipal court records, in each county court jurisdiction nationwide.
Statewide Level Criminal Records Search
- Searching state records complements county-level inquiries.
Federal District Level Criminal Records Search
- Crimes that don't necessarily fall under local laws are under federal jurisdiction. These crimes may include: tax evasion, embezzlement, counterfeiting, and similar "white collar" crimes.
National Criminal Records/Sex Offender Database Search
- This search must be on a national scale—not limited simply where an applicant currently lives and works.
