Verifying an Employment Background Screening

Many employers choose to perform an employment background screening to protect their company. Unfortunately, there is room for error, and it is possible for results to lack accuracy and pin a criminal background on an innocent person. Luckily, there are multiple ways to identify mistakes and fix them before it’s too late.

Common Causes

If an unlucky applicant happens to share a name and birthdate with a convicted felon, their report may come back incorrect. If the candidate has encountered this issue in the past, more than likely, they will have the correct information to prove that the company has been misinformed.

Another explanation for inaccurate information to be included in your results is if the company chose to take shortcuts in the procedure. These careless mistakes could possibly jeopardize someone’s job opportunity, and your gaining of a reliable employee.

How to Avoid Inaccurate Results

Receiving inaccurate information is disappointing, but there are ways to ensure your results are accurate and secure.

The first step an employer should take is reviewing the results with the candidate. If there are any mistakes, they have the right to file a dispute against the company that was hired for screening. Under this circumstance, the company will be given 30 days to investigate the claims. The company may extend investigation to 45 days if additional information is brought up.

If the results lead to an investigation, an employer will decide whether they want to wait 30-45 days, or drop their candidate completely and offer the position to another hire.
