BACKGROUND CHECKS: WHAT WORKS AND WHAT’S GUARANTEED TO INCREASE YOUR LIABILITY, CREATE HIGHER COSTS AND SIGNIFICANTLY LENGTHEN YOUR APPROVAL TIMES
Three Easy Ways To Evaluate Your Background Check Company
- Find a company that takes compliance seriously and carries a national accreditation through The Professional Background Screening Association. The background screening industry is subject to regulatory compliance thru various federal and state acts including The Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Drivers Privacy Protection Act (DPPA) and many others. Only put your trust in a company, such as TruDiligence, that employs proven research techniques. Never rely on a company that only utilizes a “Nationwide” database. They typically are not FCRA Compliant and may contain information that is outdated by as much as 5 years.
- Only use a vendor that allows “Tiered” processing. Avoid being sold a “Package” of products as you may be paying for services that are not needed.
- Find a vendor that can provide automated systems, electronic ordering and after hours customer support.
DO YOU REALLY WANT THE LOWEST BIDDING BACKGROUND CHECK COMPANY PROVIDING EMPLOYEES FOR YOUR MILLION DOLLAR FACILITY?
Most employers indicate that providing a safe workplace and avoiding hiring liability are the primary reasons for running background checks. Unfortunately, many of these same people also state that they selected their current background check vendor based solely on price and turnaround time. Simply put, these two thoughts do not always support one another. Do you agree that even $1.00 is too much to pay for a background check that may do nothing to limit your liability?
