Maintaining Compliance in Your Employment Screening Process

Are you handling some aspects of your employment screening internally while outsourcing others to a consumer reporting agency (CRA)? While this approach might seem cost-effective, it comes with certain risks:

Legal Considerations: You might inadvertently obtain information that cannot legally influence your employment decisions.

Loss of Protection: By handling parts of the screening process internally, you forfeit the protections provided by your CRA on those specific components of the screening report.

Discrimination Risk: Inconsistent screening practices could expose your organization to allegations of discrimination.

A reputable CRA filters out irrelevant information, reducing your exposure to legal risks. For instance, at Swailes Backgrounds, we oversee our clients’ pre-adverse and adverse notifications, ensuring FCRA compliance and maintaining consistency across screenings. Discrimination can occur unintentionally when organizations handle aspects of screening in-house. Our expertise can help mitigate your risks.

Entrusting us with your entire employment screening process not only reduces your exposure but also ensures a seamless and compliant experience. Contact us today for comprehensive screening solutions tailored to your needs!

When your business seeks support in various crucial aspects like employment screening, criminal background checks, adherence to FCRA regulations, drug screening, verification of education and employment history, examination of driving records (MVR), credit assessments, or validation of social security numbers, reach out to the Swailes Background Team for prompt enrollment and comprehensive assistance.
