Conducting Background Investigations and Reference Checks

Pre-employment history investigations and reference checks are an organization’s primary means of acquiring information about new hires from sources other than the candidates themselves. A background screening commonly includes determining whether an applicant may be unqualified for a job due to a criminal record, motor vehicle violations, poor credit history, or misrepresentation regarding academic or employment history.

A reference check usually involves reaching out to candidates’ former employers, supervisors, co-workers, and educators to verify previous employment and to collect information about the individual’s knowledge, talents, capabilities, and character.
