Are you conducting parts of your pre-employment background check in-house and vending parts out to a consumer reporting agency (CRA)? While it may save you a few dollars, there are associated risks, for example:
1. You may obtain information you cannot legally consider in employment decisions
2. You forfeit the protection provided by your CRA on portions of your background report
3. You expose the organization to a claim of discrimination if backgrounds are not conducted consistently
A quality CRA filters out information you cannot consider in the hiring process, limiting your exposure. For example, Swailes Backgrounds manage its clients’ pre-adverse and adverse letters as well as FCRA compliance assurance. This also provides consistency from background to background. Discrimination can happen quite innocently when a company in-sources portions of their pre-employment screening. We’re here to help guide you and limit your risk. Allowing us to manage your entire background will help reduce your exposure and ensure a seamless experience. Contact us today for more information!
