Construction/General Contractor

Some general contractors may not consider conducting background checks on construction workers and/or contractors, but they could be making a costly mistake. The price of performing a routine background check to uncover past criminality pales in comparison to the cost of liability and litigation that an employer could incur. The old saying, better safe than sorry, applies directly to these situations. A simple and inexpensive background check done can help avoid hiring a high-risk person who could ruin a company’s reputation and balance sheet.

Some states, such as Pennsylvania, already require background checks for contractors working at schools, for instance. Just a moment of reflection can illustrate the reasons for such a requirement. Without background checks a construction firm might inadvertently hire someone who has a criminal record. Individuals who have been convicted of violent felonies or crimes involving children are ineligible to work on school premises under this and similar laws. In cases involving schools in particular, one can readily understand why certain offenders should not be allowed access to the construction site. Protecting the safety of our children ranks at the very top of any legislature’s agenda, and it should also outrank all other considerations for contractors working on school grounds. Our Contractor packages can help protect your organization and your reputation.

Manufacturing

Screening potential employees reduces liability by ensuring that the right person is hired for the position. When employees are being trusted with company assets or the personal belongings of others, running background checks before they are hired helps to prevent situations that can negatively impact the company’s reputation.

Conducting background checks before potential employees are hired increases safety in the workplace. The result is a more positive, productive work environment overall. Pre-employment screening is an option that eliminates the need for screening in the future. Opting for screening before a candidate is offered a job protects the business, employees and customers.

Transportation

Safety and security is of particular importance in the Transportation industry, since the safety and even the lives of so many depend on the reliability and competence of the people to operate and maintain our highways, rail, seaways, and airways, and even the pipelines which carry oil and natural gas. For this reason, the federal government closely regulates the standards of workplace safety for this industry.

If your company conducts business within the Transportation industry, you are concerned both with reliable operation and with adhering to the regulations set forth by the Department of Transportation and other federal and state regulatory agencies. We constantly monitor new legislation and regulations to ensure that our clients are employing the appropriate screening technology and databases to maintain compliance.

As important as avoiding fines and restrictions from regulatory violations is avoiding potential litigation, fraud, theft, and workplace violence. A transportation screening solution shows that you exercise due diligence and caution, which helps to insulate your company from potential liability risks.

Retail

The Retail industry is especially vulnerable to the hazards of poorly vetted employees. High turnover means potential danger can always enter your workplace. Employees have access to cash, inventory, and customer financial information, and are often responsible for the safety of customers and the security of retail or warehouse locations. The temptation for fraud and theft is high; carefully screening is necessary to avoid shrinkage and insure workplace security and safety.Our Retail industry packages thoroughly search databases for information that reveals potential dangers in an applicant’s past.

Landlord/Tenant

The economic challenges facing our nation have created particular problems for landlords and residential property managers. Tenants who have lost jobs and income have found themselves unable to meet their contractual agreements; turnover in rental units has skyrocketed and those who have lost homes through mortgage problems are seeking new places to live.

Experience shows that previous rental experience is an accurate predictor of future rental behavior. But simply being presented with raw search data, like eviction records, previous landlord inquiries and court actions, is complicated to interpret for untrained individuals.

The Landlord/Tenant Screening takes the raw data and analyzes it using sophisticated search logic, resulting in a thorough and easy-to-read report that helps landlords make decisions about potential tenants. And since many tenant decisions have to be made quickly, clients have access to instant eviction record searches that access records either locally (in a single state) or across the nation. Landlord/Tenant package includes credit, criminal and residence histories, plus Instant Eviction searches.

Healthcare

In no other industry do we place our trust, even our lives, as much as we do to health care professionals. The physical safety and health of patients are dependent on trustworthy employees. The most intimate details of our personal and financial lives are in jeopardy if they can be accessed by unscrupulous employees. The potential for negligence, abuse, criminal action and financial wrongdoing is high, so it is vital for health care employers to have a reliable system for ensuring the reliability of new hires.

In addition, patient rights legislation has imposed stringent controls on patient privacy and data security, so the element of compliance is added to an employer’s own sense of responsibility. The Health Care search packages are designed to give you peace of mind about the employees to who you grant access to data systems, buildings and secure areas, drug storage, expensive equipment and vulnerable patients.

Financial Industry

Few employers are more vulnerable to negligent of criminal actions by bad hires than those in the financial industry. The temptation of huge amounts of cash and accesses to credit information and financial databases is extremely high. The recent scandals in the banking and mortgage sectors have made it imperative that financial services companies have reliable and respectable employees tending to the needs of their customers.

The misuse and appropriation of investor and customer funds in recent years have led to increasingly strict regulation of the industry, so compliance is an issue front and center in every employer’s mind. Homeland Security and other agencies are also concerned with seeing that American dollars are not diverted or funneled into terrorist organizations, so additional regulations have been imposed.

The Financial Services packages focus on security and fiscal responsibility in an applicant’s past. They also emphasize compliance with the Patriot Act, FFIEC and FDIC requirements, and other regulations.

Education

Every day, across the nation, millions of parents entrust the safety and wellbeing of their children to educational institutions.

This is essential for the good of the individuals involved and to preserve the reputation and integrity of the institution.

Non-Profits

It is often difficult for those who administer non-profit organizations and corporations to think in terms of protecting themselves from dishonest or fraudulent applicants. After all, at the heart of most non-profits is a standard of service and trust.

This very trusting nature can make non-profits vulnerable to exploitation by deceptive individuals. Not only are their own assets at risk, but the individuals and agencies they serve are often in positions of vulnerability. Particular caution must be taken in screening potential employees and volunteers for placement in these positions of trust. One disastrous incident can endanger an organization’s reputation for trustworthiness Our Non-Profit packages can help protect your organization and your reputation.

Gaming Industry

The gaming industry is big business in the United States. It is not restricted to Las Vegas or Atlantic City: 19 states have casinos and card clubs of one for or another and 28 states have Native American gaming enterprises on Indian reservations or tribal land.

In any environment where such huge amounts of cash change hands, the temptation for criminal activity is enormous. Casinos must not only weed out applicants with criminal histories but also identify those who have exhibited risky behavior or relevant financial difficulties that might lead them astray. The Gaming packages are designed to maintain standards that protect against potential fraud and theft.
