Background Checks for the Government Agencies

Finding Qualified Candidates Saves Time And Money

Government agencies tend to promote from within, which often results in unfilled entry-level positions. Finding people for these jobs can be surprisingly difficult. When you have new candidates, you'll want to be as certain as possible that they are qualified and likely to stay long-term. Screening your applicants helps you find eligible people and make educated hiring choices. Backgrounds Online offers Custom Background Checks that can be tailored to any position in your office.

Avoid Risk When Hiring Government Employees

The best way to avoid risk when hiring government workers is to learn everything you can about potential employees. First, verify the individual's identity, employment history, and education. It's also advisable to run a PEER Credit report, which offers insight into the candidate's credit and payment histories, shows bankruptcies and provides other relevant facts. The hiring process can be slow for government agencies. Backgrounds Online helps you expedite your search and reduce risks by giving you the facts you need to make informed decisions.

Comprehensive Criminal Background Checks

Government workers are likely to have access to personal information about residents in their local city. That makes it crucial to run authoritative criminal background checks on every applicant. Backgrounds Online offers a full array of criminal screenings, including county, nationwide and federal searches, Terrorist Watch List Search checks and a Sex Offender Registry Search. Use them to verify that applicants do not have a criminal history that could bring embarrassment and scandal to your office.

Frequently Asked Questions

How can you help us find qualified people?

A: Before hiring anyone, it's important to make sure they are eligible. Backgrounds Online checks employment, education and personal references. We also verify licenses and any other credentials that are required for specific positions.

People sometimes pad their resume so that they appear to be qualified. We'll thoroughly check each candidate and show you whether or not they meet all your qualifications so you can make the best possible hiring decisions.

Do I need background checks for administrative personnel?

A: FCRA compliant background checks are important whether you're hiring high-level government workers, entry-level administrative staff or any other position.

Background checks help you avoid the risk of hiring unqualified candidates. These reports confirm an applicant's identity and verify their education and employment histories. Count on a background report to show you anything you need to know about a potential administrative employee.

Can background checks accelerate our hiring process?

A: Yes. When you run a background check, you get all the facts you need to make informed decisions in a single report. These reports contain useful details about an applicant's past, such as whether or not they've gone through bankruptcy, been convicted of crimes, received specific credentials and much more.

What are the benefits of annual screenings?

A: Once you hire someone, it is important to know that they remain eligible for employment. Annual reports show you if a current employee received a traffic violation, judgment or criminal conviction during the previous year. Use them to discover whether or not an existing staff member has something new on their record about which you should be aware.

Do you provide annual drug screening for government employees?

A: Yes. Backgrounds Online works with Quest Diagnostics to provide comprehensive drug screening services. We can schedule a 5, 10 or 14 panel drug screen for your employees each year.
