What are the most common searches that companies request?

The most common types of background investigations that are requested include criminal convictions, sex offender registry, education verification, employment verification, and driver license searches.

What are some important Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) Guidelines for reporting convictions?

There are many FCRA Guidelines for reporting convictions. These include the following:

  • The FCRA authorizes employers to conduct background investigations on both applicants and current employees.
  • If an employer uses information from the background investigation to deny employment, the employer must follow the FCRA Adverse Hiring Decisions.
  • The employer is responsible for providing the applicant with a copy of the background investigative report.

For a complete review of important FCRA Guidelines, contact one of our background investigation specialists.

What does the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) say about a person who is denied employment?

According to the EEOC, a person cannot be denied employment based on a criminal record alone. The decision to hire or not hire must be based on a “business necessity,” which requires the employer to consider:

  • The nature and gravity of the offense(s)
  • The time that has passed since the conviction
  • The nature of the job held or sought
