As an employer you understand that it is wise to undertake pre-employment screening on potential employees, but those same potential employees have rights. As the employer, you have to abide by the rules of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA). We are an FCRA compliant background check company.

Background Profiles, an employee screening and background check service, is proud to announce an update to its information page on employee criminal background checks. These checks are an important part of any hiring process as if employers are negligent when it comes to making sure they are creating a safe space for their employees and customers, they could be contacted by someone like premises liability attorney Jeff Mehalic and have a case brought against them. The upgrade, part of a comprehensive new website, adds fresh information about this background check service for employers in many industries.

There are so many rules and regulations surrounding employment in the 21st century that it is sometimes difficult for many employers fully to understand them all. This is because the level of knowledge needed for jobs has never been this high so while employers are scrutinizing every part of what an applicant has submitted – whether that’s looking at their query letter format or previous experience – it’s only fair that the employers are held to this same level of scrutiny to ensure everyone is being treated fairly.
If you are not an HR manager engaged in hiring on a day-to-day basis, but simply run a small business with a need to hire a new employee only now and again, then it is very likely that you will not be fully conversant with every aspect of the law. It is very easy to make a mistake. For this reason, some small businesses may choose to outsource the hiring of employees or use the services of a local employee leasing company to find qualified and suitable employees for whatever position is needed.
