What To Know About Background Checks

Posted on May 24th, by Jessica Miles in Job Search. Comments Off on What To Know About Background Checks

If a potential employer requests a background check, the candidate who they are considering hiring must provide written authorization.  It is very important for candidates to provide authorization to the background-check company directly for privacy reasons.

Since it is the employer who is requesting and paying for the background check the information will not be shared with the candidate and this is the norm. 

Typically, candidates should not authorize a background check unless they are well into the selection process, and have met with the company in-person and confirmed that they are interested in the role.

We often see background checks as a requirement when candidates will have the use of company credit cards, profit and loss responsibility, and for individuals who work with high-risk populations such as children and elderly.
