The Illusion of Anonymity

Finding Criminal History

Many people are surprised that their entire history is available in public records.  For just a few dollars, reliable background checks can reveal times in a personís life when they have been charged with a crime and whether they were convicted of that crime. 

These reports are commonly used to pre-screen employees and can be obtained without a personís knowledge or consent.  This is especially onerous because a potential employer is free to disqualify a candidate, even if they are bound by law not to consider charges that were dismissed.  On most job applications, there is an area provided for an authorizing signature.  Applicants should be aware that by providing a signature, they may be consenting to a background check.

One might think that a DUI (Driving Under the Influence) or a DWI (Driving While Impaired) arrest should not matter to an employer since the job they are applying for entails crunching numbers or preparing meals.  An employer might agree, or if they feel the personís record is an indicator of future job performance, they might decide to hire someone else. The following is a mock-up of a criminal background check.  Note the high level of detail, with complete dates, charges and outcomes.
