Self Employment Background Checks
For those who are self-employed, own a small landscaping business, or run a large corporation, having the peace of mind that your employees are who they say they are is paramount to running an efficient and profitable enterprise. Contrary to popular belief, background checks, especially those done via an electronic verification program, are cost effective, legal and helpful. Background checks, pre-employment drug screening and credit checks can be conducted in less time than ever before and these types of checks can prevent investigations by the Department of Labor and or The Department of Homeland Security. An investigation by either one of these agencies can be costly, time consuming and result in excessive legal costs and fines.
There are a number of different types of self employment background checks that are cost effective-including C.O.P.S. – Criminal Offender Profile Summary. As an authorized affiliate of National Background Data, LLC, DataCheckInc.com is proud to offer this powerful multi-jurisdictional search of state and county criminal record databases that includes data from 36 states (over 76 million records), including the Sex Offender Registries in 29 states. This type of background check gives employers very important and valuable insights into possible criminal activity of their potential hires. The National Background check can check for outstanding criminal warrants, convictions, parole violations and many other types of infractions.
A thorough pre-screening of job applicants before making a job offer will save time and money, avoid negligent hiring lawsuits, establish a safer work environment for employees, red-flag falsified job applications & fallacious claims made on resumes, but most importantly, an extensive background check will provide employers with all of the applicable facts they will need in order to make sound hiring decisions. In this down economy, where everyone is looking for an advantage, why run the risk of hiring the wrong person for that all-important job?
