Certified Background Check Services: Find the Best Employees

Background Check ServicesToo many workplaces fail to conduct a certified background check on new hires. As a result, they end up facing costly HR and liability issues. For your own protection, it’s crucial to run a federal background check on new hires. Background check companies like National PEO make the process quick and painless.

Background Check Services: What to Investigate

The information you need about an employee’s background differs according to the job responsibilities. Here are just a few things that you can uncover by conducting a thorough background screening:

  • Criminal history. If a job candidate has a criminal history, a certified background check will most likely uncover it. Evaluate the time elapsed since the crime, the severity of the crime, and the crime’s relevance before you make your hiring decision.
  • Credit checks. For jobs that require finance-related duties, many businesses choose to run a credit check after obtaining the candidate’s permission. Although the EEOC often frowns on credit checks for hiring, court decisions support an employer’s right to include credit checks as part of a background screening. You can learn about your employee’s credit history, including late payments, collections, defaults, bankruptcies, and other serious incidents.
  • Education, certificates, and licensure. Background checks conducted by qualified companies can determine whether employees have been truthful on their resumes regarding college degrees, certificates earned, and state licensure compliance.
  • Military service. Many businesses hire veterans out of feelings of patriotism, and they also hire veterans to take advantage of tax benefits. A federal background check can confirm an employee’s military history.
  • Driving records. If a job candidate will have duties that include operating a company vehicle, a background check will review the employee’s public driving records.
  • Drug testing. Employers have the right to test employees for current drug usage. A federal background check will also uncover convictions related to drug use.

Background Screening From National PEO

National PEO provides clients with a broad range of background screening services. As a client of National PEO, you’ll receive discounted pricing and special service packages tailored to fit your needs.

Our services include:

  • Arizona statewide criminal search. We review Arizona records to reveal a job candidate’s history of criminal activity.
  • Out-of-state county criminal search. In addition to searching Arizona records, National PEO will investigate your applicants for criminal activity in other states around the country.
  • Wants and warrants check. Background check companies can easily discover outstanding warrants and other criminal issues that could place employers at risk.
  • Employment verification. We review the candidate’s job history to confirm that he or she has worked for the employers listed on the resume.
  • Driving records. Our background check services uncover unsafe driving patterns and serious offenses, such as DUI.
  • Education verification. We ensure that your job candidates have completed the college degrees that they list on their resumes.
  • Social Security address and alias trace. Sometimes, job candidates hide past criminal activity by listing false addresses and aliases. A federal background check will uncover any past addresses and name changes.

In positions requiring professional licensure, National PEO’s background check services will confirm that your job candidates have the appropriate qualifications. You’ll avoid the embarrassment of discovering that employees are unlicensed and underqualified long before you hire them.
