Companies offering background checks seem to be popping up everywhere nowadays, but with such a broad range of providers, how do you decide which company deserves your business? What qualities should you be looking for in a screening company?
First and foremost, a legitimate background screening company will be compliant with the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) and the laws of all 50 states. Believe it or not, many companies that offer background check services do not abide by the state and federal laws pertaining to employment screening and cannot legally be used for employment purposes. Check the fine print – verify the company is FCRA compliant.
