How Backgrounds Online Is Operating

  • Allowing members of our team to telecommute.
  • Monitoring the status of courthouses and third-party data providers.
  • Following all best practices recommended by the CDC and other reputable organizations.
  • Updating this blog entry as needed to keep you informed.

Business Disruptions

In addition to court closures, many businesses have temporarily shut down or decreased hours at this time. This can affect our ability to obtain verifications from employers and educational institutions.

While it is not possible to create a list of businesses that are currently disrupted, if you submit a verification request that we are unable to complete, we will inform you as soon as possible.

Screening Solutions

When any service we utilize shuts down, we will notify all affected organizations and work with them to continue service with limited disruption. Our goal is to continue to provide comprehensive background screening services to you, our valued partners.

Contacting Us

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, we will endeavor to provide our high level of fast, friendly and professional service. You may contact us from 5am to 6pm PT via phone or at 800-838-4804, email.

If we have any changes to our hours of operation, we will update them here immediately.
