Can you entrust your company and its employees to someone so lightly screened? Many employers feel that it may be better to do no employment background check at all. It could be a big mistake to extend trust to someone based on such a porous criminal background check.

It must first be verified as accurate and up to date at the reporting state or county source. Based on an inaccurate database result, you may not hire a qualified candidate based on an erroneous record.
