Why Is It So Important To Run Background Checks

By Steven Sea

Due to businesses hiring candidates that have criminal records they lose billions of dollars. Violence in the work place as well as theft and sexual harassment is a great cause for concern nowadays and employers have now taken a step further by doing a background check on potential employees.

Buy carrying out a background check employers are able to trace and confirm the identity of the applicant and at the same time can check to see whether the applicant has a criminal record or any previous theft offenses. In addition an SSN is performed which reveal if the applicant has any concealed identities and will also reveal any criminal history.

A check will also reveal any traffic violations as well as warrants of arrest and will also reveal any alcohol or drug related offenses. These searches will cover the last ten years of the applicant’s life history and can be obtained in any country around the world. Companies have now been forces to conduct these searches in order to protect the company from any potentially damaging hiring lawsuits.

There are many applicants that falsify their documentation and the only way employers can protect their company and the existing staff members in the company from an unsavoury environment is to carry out a background check as no employer is immune to negligent hiring practices.

Statistics have shown that around twenty people die on a weekly basis in the workplace due to violent attacks and that over twenty thousand threats are made in the work place daily. Negligent hiring means that an employer has an obligation to protect his employees as well as his clients from injury caused by the company’s employees. That is the reason why employers need to carry out a background check on all existing as well as potential applicants.
