Background Investigations

Previously, pre-employment background investigations were performed only when job candidates applied for positions that would place them in close proximity to sensitive information or large sums of money. Indeed, it would seem reckless for a company to hire someone who would have access to significant financial or intellectual resources without first administering a thorough background inquiry. Clearly, in cases like this, the inquiry is not only appropriate, but vital. Recently, this has become a much more prevalent practice as companies try to select candidates with as few skeletons in their closet as possible.

Growing Internet usage and an increasing demand has created an increase in the number of online companies that provide background checks. Some of these companies produce accurate information and comply with the legal requirements for information verification. Others may not take the same precautions and may not be able to provide the same level of accuracy.

Jordana Beebe is the Communications Director at the Privacy Rights Clearinghouse. According to Ms. Beebe, one way to ensure a background search is performed properly and legally and that it produces accurate results is for an employer to use a recognized background investigation or employment screening company. This is important for a couple of reasons. First, working with a reputable company will help ensure the search complies with the law. Secondly, some Internet information brokerage firms and programs may turn up illegal or incorrect information. This could put an organization in hot water if the reason for not hiring an otherwise ideal candidate is based on inaccurate information.
