Background Check Employment Verification: Conducting Background Check for Employment Verification  DataCheck - Home

Background Check Employment Verification

Conducting a thorough and meticulous employment verification background check of all job applicants is a very important part of the hiring process. An exhaustive check of a persons' educational credentials, along with their job and address history is the perfect way to weed out liars, cheats and con artists. With the federal E-Verification system still mired in the deep muck of a political quagmire and with more and more people falling victim to identity theft, the best way for employers to shield themselves from employees who are bent on committing fraud is to mandate pre-screening of all potential new hires. From the ranks of executives all the way down to rank and file employees, in today's current market environment, a background check is a wise business practice.

Another concept that is a smart preventive measure to take before a person gets offered a new job is to mandate drug screening. DataCheck can test for a wide assortment of different narcotics. As part of their background check program, reputable investigative services companies can pre-screen applicants for the following drugs: amphetamines, cannabinoids, cocaine, phencyclidine, opiates, methaqualone, barbiturates, benzodiazepines, methadone and propoxphene. Any potential new hire that uses and abuses these types of drugs is not fit to be hired and could be a danger to themselves and or his or her co-workers. An employee who regularly uses illegal drugs is also likely to be dishonest, unproductive and a serious financial drain on company resources; a decent drug screening program can prevent the wrong person from being hired. People who abuse narcotics are twice as likely to steal, cheat and or commit fraud; employees who are drug free are more productive and innovative than those who are not.

Pre-screening of potential new hires is smart way to protect the assets of any business-large, midsized or even the small, family-owned operation.

More Information About Background Screening

" Do not hesitate to work with DataCheck. It is a wonderful company that delivers better and faster results than our previous provider, a very large, well known background screening company, who we left after many years! JFSA began working with DataCheck about a year ago and we never looked back. The website to place orders is very user friendly and the results arrive within 24 hours in most cases. In addition, DataCheck has excellent customer service and personal touch. They are always available to answer questions as needed. We are located on the east coast and DataCheck is on the west coast, and I was somewhat concerned in the beginning about being in a different time zone, but the time difference has never presented a problem to us. DataCheck met and exceeded all our expectations!"
