Background Check Overview

Background Checks, also known as Background Screenings is the process of searching and authenticating various pieces of personal and confidential information on an individual. Background Checks are most commonly requested by employers on job candidates for employment screening, especially on candidates seeking a position that requires high security or a position of trust, such as in a school, hospital, financial institution, airport, and government.

Generally, this involves delving into an applicant’s background to verify whether an individual is being truthful and to gain knowledge of their personal character and past employment experience. At best, the background check may determine if information provided by an applicant is true and accurate.

Background checks also identify potential hiring risks for safety and security reasons. Employers have an obligation to ensure their work environment is safe for all employees to prevent potential problems before they occur.
