    The Importance Of Criminal Background Check
    MINIMIZE RISK BY CONFIRMING IDENTITY OF INDIVIDUALS

    A criminal check is a part of the background check done for pre-employment screening. A criminal background checkbackground check has become an inexpensive way of legally obtaining details about a person. The details of the person can even be provided to the companies through their websites online and the results would be produced as soon as possible depending on the extent of the background check required.

    A criminal check can be done by investigating the criminal history of the person that would be recorded in the criminal record manuals of the courts. Each state would contain the details of all the individuals having a criminal background in their respective courts. A nationwide search might prove to be tougher since there is no general national database being maintained and open to the public that might provide the list of all the criminals in the country.

    Since state records are only able to provide the criminal history of a person in that state, it might be difficult to rule out the option of that individual having committed some crime in some other state. The only option would be to believe that a criminal would not move too far away from their home to commit a crime.

    A criminal check begins with the verification of the personal details of the individual. Authentication of the SSN might be able to provide some valuable information about the person. With the help of this information, the criminal check is made easier and might produce quicker results. However, this might sometimes be misleading since a fake SSN can be purchased on the street and, unless a check is conducted, it would be next to impossible to verify the authentication of that particular SSN.

    Along with the SSN, the person's credit history and driving history can also provide some valuable information that might prove useful during a criminal background check

    In the majority of companies, hiring people goes well beyond asking for the usual qualifications. Whether you are hiring the person as a babysitter, contractor, or CEO, it is just as important to do an employee background check.

    Only if you conduct a proper employee background check can you be definite that people are not misrepresenting themselves. Knowing how to do an employee background check

    is very important nowadays. There are thousands of people who have already been victims of different fraudulent tactics of scheming employees. Thus, it really pays to do an employee background check on the people you hire.

    Here are the legal aspects to consider.

    1. The Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA). Under the provisions of the FCRA, your company is required to obtain from the applicants a disclosure form granting authorization to conduct a pre employment background checkk.

    2. The Driver’s Privacy Protection Act. Usually, the personal information of an individual cannot be released if the person requesting it does not have a permissible use.

    3. The American with Disabilities Act (ADA). Under ADA, employers are
    prohibited to use medical or disability data in their pre employment background check

    4. Other legal provisions. Different states have different legal frameworks, such as the Investigative Consumer Reporting Agencies Act which exists in California.

    Before going a little too deep into the background of a new hire avoid stepping on a potential legal landmine during the pre-employment background check.
