Criminal History Checks

Criminal history checks are verifications done by employers on job applicants to avoid hiring candidates who have engaged in workplace violence or other activities that harm a person (e.g., sexual assault) or property (e.g., theft). ​​Employers generally use third-party service providers whose business is to conduct background screening. These providers are well equipped and experienced to conduct thorough and accurate background screening.
