PBSA Accreditation: What Does It Mean?

In the United States alone, employers request millions of background checks every year. With the request of the countless background checks comes improper and insufficient background checks that lead to hundreds or thousands of FCRA lawsuits that will result in substantial financial losses. Indeed, it is highly important to conduct thorough and compliant background checks with PBSA accreditation.

Background Screening Services

Laws and regulations govern the background screening services industry that continues to grow and change. One of the priorities of your business or organization is to ensure you always remain in compliance with every law and regulation. Further, any form of noncompliance with the laws and regulations can lead to significant fines and potentially, litigation.
