An Update to Information on Employee Criminal Background Check Services
One of Background Profiles’ special areas of service is in conducting employee criminal background checks, both for current employees as well as pre-employment criminal background checks for potential hires. For a variety of reasons, not the least of which is potential legal exposure, employers need to know if a potential hire has a criminal record. However, full due diligence in an employee criminal background check is not easy because not only does one have to meet legal or regulatory requirements but also one must search multiple levels of criminal records on a potential employee.
The newly updated page details some of the levels of government records that must be dealt with such as the following:
County Level Criminal Records Search
This includes superior, upper, lower, and/or municipal court records, in each county court jurisdiction nationwide.
Statewide Level Criminal Records Search
Searching state records complements county-level inquiries.
