When hiring for your business you need to find an employee you can trust. As the employer you are responsible for maintaining a safe work environment for everyone on your team. Checkpoint Screening can help you make sure that your next hire is thoroughly screened using a process that is FCRA compliant.
Compliance is critical when performing a pre-employment screening. Providing aged or inaccurate information is a violation of the law but many background screening companies skip the information review process to reduce their costs. This exposes you to significant legal exposure from potential claims brought against you for illegal hiring processes. It also increases your chances of passing up on a quality candidate due to inaccurate information. Checkpoint Screening performs a thorough quality control review on every report we provide.
Our reports use premium data sources and involve expert analysis. When you obtain a pre-employment screening report from Checkpoint you can rely on it being thorough and accurate. Hiring without screening can harm your reputation or pose a threat to your staff and customers. Let us help you find the right candidate and avoid the consequences of hiring the wrong employee.

Employment verification: Our in-house verification specialists call current and/or previous employers to verify employment history. We ask about start and end date, title, etc. to give you a clear picture of your applicant’s employment history.
County level courthouse search: We send a professional court records researcher to the county courthouse to search for records related to your applicant. This is the most up to date information available. This will also return records for pending criminal cases not yet fully adjudicated. This is available for both criminal and civil records.
Federal court records: We search federal district courts for records that fall under federal jurisdiction. This could include certain types of fraud, crimes on federal property, crimes committed across state lines, etc. This would also include high dollar contract disputes. Available for both criminal and civil records.

Education verification: We will verify the information provided by the applicant regarding his/her educational background. Information obtained may include dates attended, degrees earned, and any honors designations.
Social media screening: A FCRA to compliant social media search that helps you reduce the risk of negative media attention and potentially toxic work environments. Your candidate’s social media profiles are reviewed. Text or image posts are flagged if they contain racist, sexist, or discriminatory behavior; sexually explicit material; threats or acts of violence; or potentially illegal activity. Only risk-based posts are flagged. Your applicant’s personal information, including protected class information, is not included so your applicants can rest assured that their personal life and protected information will not be used against them.
