Defender™ Standard Pre-Employment Screenings

Background screenings of potential new hires help management and human resources:

  • Confirm the trustworthiness and reliability of staff and new hires.

  • Reduce costs by preventing theft and fraud and avoiding liability issues in their workplace.

  • Lower their training and turnover expenses.

  • Maintain safety and security within their company.

  • Comply with applicable regulations.

While industry-specific background screening packages are available, many businesses require less tailored screenings. The Defender Series™ Standard Pre-Employment Screenings offer three levels of configurations that confirm the personal, financial, professional and employment histories of applicants. Each level is increasingly rigorous, searching more databases and screening in greater depth.

Available search packages:

Defender Series™ Pre-Employment Screening - Level I

Social Security Address Trace - Provides insight into applicant's residency and movement patterns by returning full name, age date of birth and a complete address history, including dates and phone numbers at listed addresses. As an additional barrier to identity theft, data is crosschecked through the Social Security Death Index, which is designed to prevent the stealing of a deceased person's identity.

InstaCriminal Nationwide Search (inc. Sex Offender Search) - A powerful, virtually instant multi-jurisdictional search of state and county criminal records. This database is compiled from counties, Department of Corrections, Administration of the Court, and state sex offender registries from across the country. Also included in each search are national and international terrorism sources such as Office of Foreign Assets Control. This search includes the National Sex & Violent Offender Database, P.R.I.O.R.S. and the Foreign Nationals Database.

Employment Verification - An employment verification specialist will contact the employer to verify information reported by the employee on a job application or résumé. The report will contain dates of employment, last position held and eligibility for rehire.
