Pre-employment & Tenant Screenings

Background Check Services

Pre-employment background checks are a common practice for most employers looking to make informed hiring decisions. According to SHRM, more than 69 percent of employers run criminal background checks however overly-broad policies have recently come under scrutiny.

Best practices for employers using background checks include:

  • Obtain applicant’s written consent to perform background check
  • Strongly consider removing any waiver language from the background check consent and disclosure forms
  • Provide fair warning prior to taking adverse employment action
  • Wait at least five business days before finalizing the adverse decision
  • Have all background check policies and forms checked by qualified employment counsel to ensure compliance
