Employee Background Checks

While industry-specific background screening packages are available, many businesses require
less tailored screenings. The Standard Employment Screening Solutions
offer three levels of configuration to confirm the personal, financial, professional and employment
histories of applicants. Each level is increasingly rigorous, searching more databases and
screening in greater depth.

Pre-Employment Screening — Level 1

  • InstaCriminal Nationwide Search—Virtually instant multi-jurisdictional search of state and county criminal records compiled from counties, Department of Corrections, Administration of the Court across the country.
  • Social Security Address Trace—Returns full name, age, date of birth and a complete address history, including dates and phone numbers at listed addresses. Data is crosschecked through the Social Security Death Index to prevent the stealing of a deceased person’s identity.
