A background check is an investigation into the background of a potential employee. It is used to discover possible criminal activity, driving risk or discrepancies in employment or education history.
Background screening providers search public records using information provided by a candidate, such as name or date of birth, to locate documentation that matches the personal identifiers.
A background check may include but is not limited to criminal court records, driving history records, employment or education verifications, and registry searches.
The information sought via a background check varies from employer to employer, depending on industry requirements and the needs of the position for which the employer is hiring.
A background check will attempt to verify previous employers using only the information provided by the candidate. It typically does not reveal prior employers whom the candidate did not disclose.
Previous employers may be asked to provide starting and ending dates of employment, starting and ending titles, and eligibility for rehire.
To eliminate any possible biases, employers should only share dates of employment, titles and eligibility for rehire. They should not answer additional questions about the employee.
Seven years is the most common time frame for an employment background check. However, some companies, based on their industry or the requirements of the position, may seek information over a longer time span.
Background checks are generally completed in three to five business days, though turnaround time can vary based on the information requested by the employer.
The most common product included in a background check is a criminal records search.
During a criminal records check, the background screening company searches county court records to locate any felony or misdemeanor case information (convictions and pending cases) that match the identifiers provided by the candidate.
