Why are background checks important?
Bad hires can have detrimental effects on your company. That is why high quality background checks are a critical step in the hiring process. They are a crucial part in hiring qualified candidates, protecting against liability claims, and minimizing risk. Sometimes they provide the best and perhaps only defense in a negligent hiring claim.
What can we do for you?
Our Texas background checks include an unlimited check of the Federal criminal records repositories in the states where the applicant has lived for the past 7 years. They also include a check of any needed state and county criminal records checks, as well as a social security number address history trace, a multi-state criminal records database search and a check of of the sex offender registry in all 50 states.
