Title: What is a Background Check?

What is a Background Check?
2
  • Background checks are often requested by
    employers on job candidates for employment
    screening. 
  • These checks were traditionally administered by a
    government agency for a nominal fee, but are now
    more commonly administered by private companies
    like Affordable Searches in Sugar Land
    Texas, www.AffordableSearches.com .

Background checks 
  • typically include past employment verification,
    social security verification and search, drivers
    license verification, and criminal history.
  • can be expensive depending on the information
    requested.

Furthermore
  • Employers have an obligation to make sure their
    work environment is safe for all employees and
    helps prevent other employment problems in the
    workplace.
  • 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.

  • Background Checks are also required for those
    working in positions with special security
    concerns, such as trucking, ports of entry, and
    airports.
