Most people are very honest with the information they provide prospective employers. But, those that know the system are familiar with ways to cover their criminal tracks. We offer products to assist you in confirming the identities of your applicants because the screening process loses effectiveness if you’re searching for information on the wrong person.
This Social Security Number search is used to identify the applicant by providing full names and alternate names, addresses and additional identifying information. This product is also used to identify past locations where an applicant may have lived or worked. Target ID helps obtain a more complete and thorough background check on your applicant by providing addresses and/or names not disclosed by the applicant.
This search offers consent-based, pre-hire access to the official records of the Social Security Administration’s Master File. Information verified includes name, SSN, date of birth, gender and death indicator. This product is great for reducing pesky issues employers sometimes face in validating Social Security Numbers on a post-hire basis.
While searching for resume inaccuracies is high on many employers’ checklists, nothing tops the lists like the need to locate criminal activity in an applicant’s past. Criminal records help you determine which applicants are true contenders to fill your open positions and, knowing an applicant’s past helps you protect your organization’s future. Criminal searches are available on several different levels to meet the screening criteria demands of organizations of any size, type and in any industry.
Searches county level records for felony and misdemeanor criminal activity. For this service, we only use records maintained and sourced directly from the courts. Our extensive network of ISO 9001 compliant researchers allows us to perform searches throughout the nation. This crucial step ensures you receive the most accurate, up-to-date and compliant information available.
Searches statewide criminal repositories, where available, for felony and misdemeanor records. The availability and completeness of statewide searches is dependent upon how efficiently the agencies and courts within the state contribute and maintain the repository. We currently offer access to 25 statewide repositories and offer a rating scale highlighting the varying levels of dependability. This rating scale has been established based on our high standards for accuracy. Protecting your organization is of the utmost importance. We only offer statewide searches in states where the information meets our standards for accuracy and thoroughness.
Searches the United States Federal District Courts for criminal activity violating federal laws. Crimes that fall under federal jurisdiction are prosecuted and recorded in federal district courts, not state or county courts. Therefore, these crimes are not detectable in a statewide or county level criminal search. Criminal offenses held at the federal district level could include crimes that have crossed state lines, crimes against the government or financial institutions.
Searches nationwide databases to identify criminal records existing in areas outside of known residence or work addresses. Databases are scoured for potential matches to all alias and/or maiden names associated with your candidate. CrimNet Pro includes, but is not limited to: misdemeanor and felony records contributed by participating state and county level agencies, Multi-State Sex Offender Database, the FBI Terrorist List, Federal/State/Local Wanted Fugitive Lists, The Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), and OFAC’s Specially Designated Nationals List (SDN List). While comprehensive, this product is not all inclusive. This service offers a more thorough approach to state/county level criminal searches and is a great add-on product. To comply with regulations and offer the best protection for your organization, any hits are re-verified at the county level where the offense occurred.
Searches are available from individual state registries or the National Sex Offender Registry. Statewide Sex Offender searches are conducted on a state by state basis, revealing any prior state record as a convicted sex offender. The broader search option accesses information from the U.S. Department of Justice Sex Offender Database.
Searches 100+ domestic & international terrorist, fugitive and debarment lists including the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) and Specially Designated Nationals (SDN). This service helps impede terrorists by identifying individuals linked to terrorism or classified on government watch lists, improving compliance with the United States Patriot Act.
Searches applicants that have lived outside of the United States for criminal activity, allowing you to hire international applicants confidently and implement a strong global workforce. We offer services in over 200 countries and territories, having developed relationships with many of the government entities tasked with handling criminal record searches in their respective country. If we are unable to work directly with a government source, we have sought partnerships with the most reputable vendors, providing the highest quality services available in the area. The level of screening available, identifying information required and turnaround times all vary by the country, province or territory being searched.
