Pre-Employment Background Checks

Common Packages

Traditional

Our traditional package starts with verifying the past addresses and an initial Pre-Screen search. We then search criminal records by County, State, Federal District or Metropolitan Area. We report any felony or misdemeanor records on all previous addresses within 7-10 years. Checking two to three past addresses would be typical. This package is used across many industries and is the most common.

Executive

Our executive package includes everything in the traditional package and we also include checking Federal Criminal and Bankruptcy records, Civil Records, and Driver's License records for a very thorough background check. You can also add on reference checks, verification of past employment and education. Credit reporting can also be added (dependent on location and state legislation).

Tenant Screening

Our tenant screening package is perfect for small to medium landlords. It starts with the same services as our traditional package with a SSN Address Verification, Pre-Screen search, and Criminal Records. We then include a bankruptcy search and a credit report. Package can be tailored to specific landlord request like adding on an employment verification.

Not-For Profit

Ideal for charities, churches, and other non profit organizations, this package includes everything the traditional package does and includes a discount for your organization. We can also screen potential volunteers with this package. Not-for-profits must show necessary documentation for sales tax exemption and future discounts. Call us for more information.


Below is a list of our most popular searches for background checks. These searches can be completed either individually or in conjunction with one another.  If you’re unsure on which background check options are the best for your organization, call us today and we can customize a background check package specific to your organization’s needs and budget. 

 

Criminal Record Checks in County Courts

Most of our searches are done in county courts where most serious criminal cases are tried. The counties to be searched will depend on where the candidate have lived or worked.

Criminal Record Checks Covering States or Regions

 In some areas, we can access records of criminal cases that cover an entire state or region.  We only utilize these sources when they are cost-effective and reliable. 

Criminal Record Checks in the Federal District Courts

We recommend including this search in all cases as some drug and white collar crimes are heard in the federal courts and will not be detected in a county or statewide criminal search.

Civil Record Checks

These searches look for judgments, civil litigation, and liens against a candidate.  They are particularly important for jobs involving finances.  Bankruptcy records can also be searched when needed.

Education Verification

This is the most frequently fabricated item on resumes and is important to verify for jobs having specific educational qualifications. We can confirm degree, major, graduation year or current enrollment depending on your needs.

Employment Verification

Employers are increasingly reluctant to provide references or verify past employment, however work history can usually be verified if you know who to call.

Address Verification/Identity Check

We check specialized database records to see where someone has lived.  This information can be used to provide an objective basis to know where to check for criminal records and avoid being taken in by someone who leaves off a past address on their application. 

Pre-Screen Search

In an effort to leave no stone unturned, we offer this national search that includes criminal, sex offender, terrorist and other records of interest.  It covers a wide area, but is not all inclusive, so we only use it to tell us where we need to search more comprehensively.

Credit Reporting

Complete your background check by including a credit report so you can get a full view of the candidate.  Credit checks can be done on most potential tenants and employees.  Certain states do have legislation in place limiting financial information to employers.  Email us for more information to see if you are able to add credit reporting to your background checks 

Driver’s License Records

Driving records are available to be searched in many states.  They should be checked when a candidate might drive while on the job or there is a need to screen for DWI convictions.

International Searches

Criminal and other searches can be done in many countries, but the cost and quality of those searches vary widely.  We can provide the guidance necessary to make informed decisions about the value of searching in other countries. We frequently do searches in Puerto Rico, Canada, and Mexico.

Other

We can provide a variety of additional searches including professional licensing, industry specific searches, newspaper searches, land records, mortgage/ assignment search, Office of Inspector General (OIG) sanctions list, locate searches, etc. Call for more information.
