When one thinks of the words background check, what comes to mind? Criminal Records! We have found that not everyone understands the methods available to research court records or where to start. A common misconception being the use of name and social security number. Did you know that most court record searches are name based? From there additional identifiers such as social security number, date of birth, address, etc. can be used. Recently, many courts have redacted the social security number from their public files due to identity theft, making it very important that you obtain additional identifiers from your candidate.
There is no magic 8 ball that can clear a candidate or list all criminal records associated with them. Luckily, our service offers an array of court record searches that allows you to conduct a comprehensive search and consider the facts of each candidate before making your final hiring decision.
