Accuracy and Compliance Require Strict Background Screening Standards

ireviewnow Differentiators

Accuracy, fairness, and transparency are the critical components for ensuring your background screening programs meet the stringent FCRA, EEOC, and legal mandates. An overwhelming number of providers claim they have an instant nationwide background check for less than a cup of coffee. However, they do not inform users that such a search is not a competent background check and is not FCRA compliant. When a provider refers to an instant nationwide background check, they are referring to a commercial database search. This search returns archived data that has not been reverified by the court or county of conviction. Due to Federal and State regulations, a competent background investigation must include verification with the court or county of conviction which cannot be performed for a marginal sum.

With this in mind, how can you create a program that meets both your needs and the minimum standards of background screening, all while remaining cost-effective? This checklist will help you ask the right questions.
