criminal background check
Driving records are one of the first things our company runs when hiring a new employee. Our insurance company requires that we do this and we also like to know what kind of driving history this potential new hire has. If they have had DWI’S or DUI’S we flat out do not hire them. If they have done it once they will do it again if they get stressed out about something. Criminal background check is also run before hiring any new employees we look for assault and drug issues. We go thru www.quickbackgroundchecks.com for our background checks their reports come back quickly and are easy to read.
This couple came to rent my duplex all excited as I had just remodeled it. I told them I would be doing a criminal background check. They said fine no problems. They filled out the rental application form signed the bottom stating all information above was true and correct. I ran the police check it came back no problems found. I received a call 2 days after they moved from the sheriffs department telling me the husband was on probation and they were looking for him. I now use a company www.crimefinder.com to run all my police checks and ALWAYS get a copy of a picture ID to make sure the information I am running is CORRECT….
Some people do not want to provide their social security number or date of birth to do a criminal background check. Do I have the right to require this? Isn’t it not possible to do this police check without this information? How could you positively identify that person without this information. According to www.ask.com it is legal for this purpose only. It is not to be used to discriminate against the person as in age discrimination. Which I would not do anyway. Just wondering if anyone out there has had any experience with this.
