Background check

 

Background check refers to the verification of the details provided by a candidate in his/her resume, interview or application letter. It involves authentication of information such as academic credentials; previous employment details including salary, longevity of work and work ethics; physical or health exams; credit check; criminal check and other details of the candidate important to judge his honesty and reliability for a position

Background checks and pre-employment screening are so important in today’s world, because of the real threat employers are facing under the legal doctrine “negligent hiring.” Hire incorrectly, and you may lose productivity, earnings, and even put yourself, your company, or your co-workers at risk. Screening your potential employee through a thorough background check allows your human resources department to make the right decisions.
