As we go through another year, employers and their human resources department can expect to see some various changes to the background check policies and strategies they have established. Another year is always a great time to sit back and look at the latest practices and the new regulations that will have an impact on the screening process and the final hiring decisions.
Using Multiple Background Checks
While using a background check during the pre-employment hiring process is essential to the success of any company’s hiring decision, many employers are quickly discovering that one background check is not going to be enough. As you gain familiarity with pre-employment hiring processes, you will eventually start to look beyond the first background check or screen. The information you obtain in the initial stage will only give you a small picture of the moment in time. You want to be at peace with the decision once you have notified the applicant that he or she has become one of your next employees, which means you want to use multiple background checks!
Working With a Background Screening Provider
We know that your business doesn’t want any unwanted attention that could arise from not properly following the compliance regulation and guidelines. While you may have some interest in creating a continuous screening process, you will find a variety of things that will need to be taken into consideration. One of the most important things you will need to consider is how you will respond to any new results that you notice on your current employees.
If you will use a background screening provider to take care of criminal history checks, you will be able to make sure you remain compliant with the responsibilities that have been set by the FCRA. It is very important that you work side-by-side with a background screening provider so you can ensure you remain compliant at all times. We do not suggest you take on this responsibility by yourself due to the various requirements.
