Employee Screening

Pre- Employment screening is designed to verify information supplied by candidates on their resumes and applications. Investigations are also conducted to uncover character flaws and criminal tendencies that might jeopardize the employer, tarnish its reputation, endanger staff, or limit the effectiveness of the candidate. Screening is often done to determine if employees can be trusted to manage financial resources or protect sensitive or confidential information.
