Background Screening in 2023: Why Data Source Matters

June 14, 2023

On-demand webinar

Background checks are an essential part of the hiring process for employers. These checks verify the identity, education, employment history, criminal record, and other information of potential candidates. However, not all background checks are the same. Depending on the type and scope of the check, different sources of data can be used, and different results will be obtained. One of the most important distinctions to understand is between county, state, and federal background checks. These are three different levels of jurisdiction that may have different records and databases for criminal and civil cases. Depending on the nature and location of the job, employers may need to order one or more of these checks to get a complete report of a candidate's background. Listen to the discussion about these differences and how you can order the appropriate screening packages for your workforce.
