How should you, as an employer, be aware of your employees' past

Source: Accurate Investigation LLC
Employers may be found negligent and liable if their employees commit harmful acts while on the job for which the employer should have been aware (for example, the employee posed a threat to coworkers or customers). How should you, as an employer, be aware of your employees' past?

The answer is simple: Perform a thorough pre-employment background investigation.

More and more companies are outsourcing pre-employment screening services today. As human resources organizations are asked to participate in strategic functions they are less able and less willing to spend precious time and resources on this highly administrative function.
Likewise, any company that sends individuals into people's homes MUST be concerned about public safety, as well as protecting the business. For a small price, Accurate Investigation, LLC can help business owners avoid negligent hiring lawsuits.

Partnering with the right provider is essential to meeting organizational objectives and protecting your long-term strategies. Accurate Investigation, LLC understands the needs of today's human resources organizations and is committed to helping you make knowledgeable, fast hiring decisions. All information can be entered on-line 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Accurate Investigation, LLC offers background verification, criminal history, and much more. A background screen consists of any or all of the following:

Social Security Trace Recommended on all applicants, this trace acts as an identifier. It reveals names associated with a Social Security number as well as past and present addresses - essential elements in researching criminal history.

Criminal Records Search Recommended on all applicants. Accurate Investigation, LLC provides nationwide and international searches of criminal records by going directly to the source - county and state courthouses, and Federal District Court records. NO DATABASES USED. To ensure you are complying with due diligence laws, it is essential to be sure the information you receive is fresh and accurate. Database information is notoriously inaccurate, and should not be solely used in hiring decisions. Some criminal records are available same-day.

Employment History Verification Many applicants falsify employment information. We verify dates of employment, position, and salary (where available) by going directly to previous employers.

Education Credential Verification Education history is the most commonly falsified information on resumes and job applications. We verify the degree or credential received, as well as the date awarded.

Credit History Examination This check can reveal a great deal about a prospective employee and is particularly recommended for applicants slated for financial positions. All checks are done in strict compliance with the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA).

Motor Vehicle Records Examination This is highly recommended for anyone applying for a job driving a truck, company car or operating machinery. In addition, employers with company-owned roadways may wish to limit access to employees with unsafe driving records. In some states, convictions for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs are not on the criminal court record and can only be revealed through a DMV check. Accurate Investigation, LLC's report will reveal motor vehicle violations, suspensions and revocations, and it will indicate the type of license granted and restrictions on use. Some states available same-day.

Professional Reference Checks Our well-trained interviewers will contact colleagues and coworkers listed on the applicant's resume or job application to obtain an assessment of the applicant's capabilities and work record. The Accurate Investigation, LLC's system is customizable to use the same questions you would ask a reference, or you can use our standard set of questions for this check.

Accurate Investigation, LLC offers these checks, and many others, including business reports, international criminal background reports and international driving reports. If you need any special reports or background checks, we are more that happy to help you.
