Pre-Employment / Background Searches
We provide several different levels of pre-employment background searches. These range from a simple criminal, driver, and other records searches up to a more thorough investigation which may include a polygraph examination. Each search is tailored to the unique set of variables (client, subject, position, qualifications, etc.).
You can rest assured that the subject will never know they were checked-out by our private investigators. They will not be contacted and no traces of our background investigation will ever be discovered.
The cost and turnaround time depend upon what state
the person and company are located, as well as how much information
you have on the subject(s). The more information you have, usually the cost is less, the less information you have,
the more searches we need to process, making the cost slightly higher. There are very few things
that we cannot get for you, and have access to every county/state in the United States.

should disqualify them from given positions. So if that employee convicted of
theft causes a loss to one of your customers (embezzlement, credit card fraud),
then YOU may be held responsible!! You
can be liable because you "should have known!"
line is, if you hire someone based solely on their resume and their word, you
are at risk for encountering these and many more problems. And as we all know,

Employee Dishonesty: 8% of our employment background checks show a discrepancy
with what their SSN, DOB, or spelling of their name.
Some applicants may try to hide an undesirable background from you by
providing fraudulent documents or an invalid social security number, incorrect
date of birth, or a slight misspelling of their name.
A background search ensures that the spelling, date of birth, and SSN are
all accurate, which then ensures 100% accuracy of any other searches such as
criminal, driving, etc.
Omissions & Incomplete Records: Roughly
17% of processed background checks have a charge and or conviction related to
violence; can you accept this in your business?
Some applicants will deliberately withhold conviction information to hide
past criminal activity and or a violent past.
Employers can be held liable for employees who commit acts of violence
while at work, especially if the employer failed to check their past.
