Form that says Criminal Background Check

3 HR Mistakes in Employment Screening

In our experience, there are 3 mistakes HR teams commonly make in criminal record searches:

1) Google the applicant (and God forbid) finding a criminal record outside of the law (FCRA)

2) Searching only local records and missing other areas of residency or work

3) Not doing a criminal check at all!
