Employment Screening - Background Check Regulations and Compliance

  1. Employers need to make sure that they pay attention to federal and state regulations from the government as well as certification and licensing during the hiring process. 
  2. Making sure that compliance requirements are met can be quite a daunting task for someone not trained in this field. Even the Small Business Administration recommends hiring someone in the Background Check field for guidance in this process.
  3. Every part of this Employment Screening - Background Check, from credit checks to criminal record searches, must be completed within very strict guidelines to maintain fair employment practices and to avoid any discrimination claims.
  4. On average an organization loses approximately 5% of its annual revenue to occupational fraud. More than a fifth of fraud cases cause losses of more than $1 million. Worker dishonesty and theft can then also reduce production rates, it can damage consumer confidence, and it can destroy your brand or reputation as an employer. 
  5. Employers have both a legal and a moral obligation to provide staff with a safe working environment.

Negligent Hiring Liability is the law that holds employers responsible for what they should have known about their employees before hiring them. It can actually even hold an employer responsible for an employee’s actions when not on the clock. The legal system repeatedly affirms that employers have a “duty to exercise reasonable care in hiring individuals who, because of the nature of their employment, may pose a threat to the public”.
