    Why Conduct Background Checks?

    Background checks are often requested by employers for employment screenings; especially on candidates seeking a position that requires high security or a position of trust. Such positions include a person working in a school system, hospital, financial institution, airport, or the government. These checks are traditionally administered by a government agency for a nominal fee, but can also be administered by private companies such as Diamond Investigations. Results of a background check typically include past employment verification, credit history, and criminal history.

    These checks are often used by employers as a means of objectively evaluating a job candidate’s qualifications, character, and to identify potential hiring risks for safety and security reasons. Background checks are also used to thoroughly investigate potential government employees in order to be given a security clearance.

    Checks are frequently conducted to confirm information found on an employment application or résumé/curriculum vitae. One study showed that half of all reference checks done on prospective employees differed between what the job applicant provided and what the source reported! They may also be conducted as a way to further differentiate potential employees and pick the one the employer feels is best suited for the position. Employers have an obligation to make sure their work environment is safe for all employees and helps prevent other employment problems in the workplace.
