Background Checks

iStock_000004792809SmallBackground Checks – Performing a background check is a core part of our job on almost every case we work.  It is always important for us to “get to know” our subjects and we use relevant methods to each case as we study our subjects and learn how to best approach the work.  Alternatively, many people contact us looking for background checks for a variety of reasons such as pre-employment, partners entering business together, prospective relationship partners, etc.  We are able to help our clients make informed decisions by providing information on criminal history, bankruptcies, court records, driving records, prior employment, liens, judgments, foreclosures, evictions, address history and more.

ArticlesEmployment Background Checks – Companies have different ideas on how deep they would like to investigate an individual they are going to hire based on what role the prospective employee will have and what he/she might have access to within the company.  For many positions, employers are solely interested in criminal history and employment references.  For executive hires, however, many companies want to search deeper and look into criminal history, credit history, foreclosure history, bankruptcies, driving history, credential verification, prior employment and more.  Employers are looking to find out if the applicant is honest, reliable, fiscally responsible and qualified for the job before they make such a big hiring decision.  We provide information to employers so that they can attempt to determine this and whether they have found the best candidate for the position.  (Note some of these areas of investigation require prior consent from the applicant.)
