A background check or background investigation is the process of looking up and compiling criminal records, commercial records and financial records of an individual or an organization. Background checks are often requested by employers on job candidates for employment screening, especially on candidates seeking a position that requires high security or a position of trust, such as in a school, hospital, financial institution, airport, and government. Background checks can be expensive depending on the information requested but the cost of a negligent hire can be damaging financially and to the reputation of a company. Results of a background check typically include past employment verification, credit score, and criminal history. These checks are often used by employers as a means of objectively evaluating a job candidate’s qualifications, character, fitness, 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.
