Criminal background screening: Have a plan
from The Staffing Stream
Commissioning a pre-employment criminal background search can feel like a dizzying experience to many hiring organizations. In fact, a 2014 survey by First Advantage found almost 40 percent of those who order criminal background checks are uncertain about the process. Much of this likely has to do with the fact that there are multiple sources of different kinds of criminal history information, not to mention multiple providers that offer them. Confusing matters further are the varying rules and regulations, depending on the location of the organization and the candidate, and inconsistencies in turnaround time based on the type and geographic scope of the search. But perhaps the single-biggest cause of confusion related to criminal background screening is that companies don’t have a firm understanding for their own risk tolerance in this area.
