What Kind of Background Screening Solutions Do You Need?

You know that you need to conduct background screenings on new (and perhaps current) employees, but which ones do you really need?  Is a pre-employment credit report necessary?  How about a multi-state criminal database check?  Would you feel best knowing that his/her previous place of employment has been verified?  Is a social security search/trace going overboard?

First of all, congratulations on asking yourself these very tough questions.  Many employers don’t even take these thoughts into consideration until it’s too late and a problem has arisen.  So you’re one step ahead of your competitors.
