The entire background check can be used to verify the applicant’s identity, past criminal record, education, and credit.

Credit checks give the employer a better idea on who they are hiring and trusting with private company information. In other words, It gives the employer a big picture snapshot of how a new hire will handle their responsibilities. Most credit checks for potential new hires are done last in the background check process, meaning that usually when an employer runs a credit check they have likely already made their decision.
