Reference & Background Checks

Due diligence, Careful screening and Proper Hiring

Note: Obtaining background check information from a third-party resource requires that you adhere to the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) because the information provided is considered a consumer report. Be sure you understand those requirements for your particular state.

Know what you’re getting into.

Background checks reveal useful information about prospective candidates. Avoid claims of negligent hiring, verify the information given to you, and know what you’re getting into. We recommend completing a background check for all new hires, regardless of position.

How does the process work?

  1. Order the background check using our forms, providing all necessary information
  2. Obtain the applicant’s authorization on the correct forms
  3. Send us the paperwork and payment
  4. Receive the report after about 7 business days
  5. Review results and finalize hiring decision
