What is an Employee Background Check?

An employee background check is a process in which an employer investigates the background of an individual who is being considered for employment. This can include verifying information provided on a job application or resume, as well as conducting additional research such as criminal record checks, educational and employment verification, and reference checks. The purpose of an employee background check is to ensure that the individual is qualified for the position and does not have any past conduct that would make them unfit for the job. Employers may also conduct background checks on current employees as part of an ongoing evaluation or for security clearance.
