Performing employee background checks ensures your company is in compliance with local, state and Federal employment law, and protects you from incorrect or misleading information on resumes and job applications.
It’s estimated that up over 40% of resumes can contain false or tweaked information, so, employers want to insure that what you’re getting in an employee is what you were promised.
Employment History Verification
Employment history includes all the companies a potential employee has worked for, their job titles, the dates of employment and salary earned at each of their jobs. An employment history verification is conducted to confirm that the employment information included on a candidate’s resume and/or job application is accurate.
When hired for a new job, employees are required to prove that they are legally entitled to work in the United States. Employers are required to verify the identity and eligibility to work for all new employees. An Employment Eligibility Verification form (I-9 Form) must be completed and kept on file by the employer.
There are several types of drugs tests that candidates for employment may be asked to take.
Hiring can be contingent upon passing pre-employment drug tests and screenings.
