ELEMENTS OF A BACKGROUND CHECK
At National Screening Bureau, we have a very unique screening process. We begin by checking the name of your applicant. If the name is invalid, we give you the option to verify and correct it saving you time and money.
There are several elements to conducting a thorough background check. At a minimum, we recommend every check include our standard search, which includes:
• ID Verification
• 50 State Sex Offender Search
• Multi-Jurisdictional Records Search (National)
• County Criminal Records Search (Each)
You should then consider the person's role and function in your organization and whether it is critical to include additional searches in the background check. Our screening specialists can provide guidance on when additional searches may be necessary.
Example: If you are screening an employee or volunteer who will drive a vehicle for your organization, you should also include a search of Motor Vehicle Records. If the individual will handle finances for your organization, it is wise to also run a Credit Report.
Additional Searches Include:
• Employment Credit Report
• Motor Vehicle Report
• Education Verification
• Employment / Income Verification
• Global Report - Patriot Act Name Search
• Federal Criminal Court Search

REASONS TO SCREEN
#1 - You Must Avoid Legal Liability
If you fail to check the background and history of an employee and that employee hurts someone in the workplace, your company could be held liable. Negligent hiring lawsuits happen all the time and employers pay big money.
#2 - Validate the Applicant's Skills
Just because a job applicant claims that he’s qualified for something or experienced in a certain field doesn’t mean that it’s true. You need to do a background check to validate his claims.
#3 - To Prevent Office Violence
Violence in the workplace carries enormous cost and risk. Not only does it potentially expose your staff to physical harm, but it disrupts your company’s operations and your pocketbook. While doing an extensive background check doesn’t guarantee a new employee won’t act violently, it’s one of the most effective and preventative measures you can take.
#4 - Avoiding Employee Theft
A large percentage of the people who steal items from the companies for which they work have a history of doing so. Checking an employee’s background can reveal whether a prospective hire has been fired or convicted of theft in the past.
#5 - Avoiding Nuisance Lawsuits
There are people who apply for jobs, secure a position and then sue the company that has hired them. It may take the form of a worker’s compensation claim or a sexual harassment suit. You can find out whether a job applicant has a history of filing these types of lawsuits.
Conducting employee background checks is an important part of protecting your staff and your company. They help maintain the safety of your employees. Plus, they can shield your business from a host of potential problems that can result from hiring an undesirable worker.
