Here I would like to give you some practical hints on how to carry out employment criminal background check ups successfully in both above mentioned ways.
Let us start with do-it-yourself employment criminal background check ups. Is it really difficult and is it possible to do? Yes, of course it is possible. Only it requires some skills in online research and some knowledge on where and what to look for.
First of all, you need to decide what information from the criminal reports of your prospect job applicants you want to obtain, if they have such reports at all. You may get the information on the crimes they have been convicted in and on their driving records, such as overspeeding or driving drunk. All such data is open for the public, except for the information on juvenile crimes.
Next, where do you look for this information? There is a number of state or country criminal report bases, as well as databases of criminal sex offenders available online. State ones would have only data on the state level, while country ones can have more complete information.
What do you need to make an employment criminal background check up on a particular person? You need to know that person’s proper and full name and his or her SSN number. Otherwise, you won’t be able to get valid results from your search.
That is where we come to outsourcing your employment criminal background check ups. As you may see, the do-it-yourself way can be time consuming, but quite possible to do. But, you can never know if you have the right data, until you check the person’s identity and residence. That is where outsourcing beats your own search. If you turn to a private company, most of them have they own criminal report and other sorts of databases and can provide you with instant search results. Moreover, they can do the identity check and investigation and make sure your job applicant does not take part in identity theft or does not try to cover up his or her past criminal incidents.
