How do background checks work?

The main reason to conduct employment screening is to ensure that your candidates are trustworthy. Any red flags on background checks are immediate grounds to disqualify candidates.

Background checks involve verifying applicant identity by using information like their social security number and date of birth, as well as looking into financial records, court records, or other public record databases.

This might also involve HR professionals manually contacting references to verify an employee’s history.
