Criminal Records Check
Any background investigation requires an examination of criminal records. The degree to which they're examined, however, varies with the job or needs of the employer. Positions involving work with children, the elderly, or the disabled often require far more extensive background checks than office and clerical work jobs. Nevertheless, Data Check has several options for a criminal records check.
Options for Criminal History Checks
Here are some of the options your company can choose for a criminal history records check when examining a candidate

An employer should have as full of a picture of a candidate as possible. Although the individual will appear clean and motivated in an interview, his or her criminal history may reveal information that disproves this. A combination of these criminal record checks will give your company an all-encompassing summary of a candidate's past.
