Background Reports - Get to Them Before Anyone Else Does

Aug 17, 2007
Background reports are documents generated from a background check, an investigation into the personal data, character and qualifications of an individual. Background checks are culled from a number of sources, including arrest and conviction records, driving and credit history and work history. Aside from this, background checks can also include bankruptcy records, credit licensing records and even medical histories.

Background Reports - Somebody Wants to Know More About YOU

People usually request for background reports to determine if an applicant is the right fit for a vacant position. Sometimes, a credit check will be performed on an employee as part of a series of background checks, even if the position does not entail handling financial information. Credit checks actually determine if an individual is able to handle responsibility and can be relied on for job related matters.

If you know that background checks will be conducted on you, then you need to take the initiative to order one for yourself to know what kind of information can be found. This way, you can also check if there are any mistakes or discrepancies reflected in the background reports so that these can be revised immediately.

Nowadays, companies do background checks routinely so do not be offended by this practice. In fact, companies have to do this as a means to ensure that they are hiring the right personnel and to legally protect themselves. How? Say for instance that a school has hired a teacher and no background check is conducted. The person turns out to have a previous record for pedophilia. In this scenario, parents of the children attending the school can sue the school administration for not being responsible enough in their hiring process, putting their children at risk.

Background checks can be done in a matter of minutes when the information is already available online. Online background reports mean that numerous sources can be sifted through and compiled in a short period of time, but this does that mean that the restrictions for non-digitized records will not apply to online records. Further, medical records, military service records and educational records are considered confidential records and your consent is required prior their release.

If you are planning to compile background reports, you have to make sure that the third party company you are working with is compliant with federal and state laws. Many of the online companies offering background reports may often resort to unscrupulous methods to gain information and you would not want to be associated with these providers.
