Background Screening Services

Identity Verifications

We search against 70 million Social Security Administration records to verify if a Social Security Number is authentic and the year and state in which it was issued. This also allows us to confirm the applicant's maiden & alias names as well as current and former addresses.

Nationwide Criminal Records

Provides criminal court records search for all convictions & arrests through various databases and repositories.

Criminal Court Records

Provides criminal court records search for all convictions to date and the previous seven (7) years of criminal activity or arrests. Our researchers physically search court records, comparing personal identifiers to accurately report criminal history.  Case details for felony, misdemeanor, ordinance violation, and DUI records within the current and past counties where the applicant has resided.  Because most crimes are committed in the county where the offender has lived and/or worked, a county criminal record search is essential to any criminal record background check and is recommended for all applicants as part of the pre-employment screening process. We have access to all 3,144 U.S. counties and county equivalents.  Our reports include a case number, date of offense, filing date, charge(s), type of charge and outcome.  These types of searches take the longest amount of time because of the verification of case details. Approximately 24-72 hours.

Federal District Criminal Courts

Provides arrest and conviction information prosecuted by the U.S. District Courts. 

Driving Records

This search reveals an individual’s driving record with the state's Department of Motor Vehicles.  Hiring a poor driver opens your organization up to increased liability and can raise your insurance premiums.  As a result, motor vehicle record checks are being requested more often by insurance companies before employees are permitted to operate company vehicles. Information supplied varies by state, but typically includes driving history, license type, infractions, and driving restrictions.

Credit History

Hiring for any position where employees have access to money or company assets increases your responsibility. Accessing an applicant's credit history assists you with understanding the candidate's fiscal responsibility.  This report provides compiled credit history and includes high/low balances, loans, bankruptcies, payment patterns, and debt information.

Government Registries

When considering the safety of children, patients, and clients who will be involved with your business, it is important to know if an applicant is listed on any Government Registries.  This screen will discover certain sex offenses, terrorist activities, fraud, or other government sanctions.

Professional License Verification

Verify license number, date of issuance, expiration date, and any disciplinary actions.  Common state-regulated licenses include nurses, dentists, doctors, and lawyers.

Employment Verification

Previous employment verification is often the most difficult and time consuming part of the hiring process.  We will contact past employers to confirm the given information is correct.
