What do they look for in background checks?

Does your employer need to do a background check on you? This is alarming because not all employers can get background checks on their employees. When you were filing your job application, did they ask you for your social security number? Do you know this is how to get all your credit and other background details?
Some employers do it for a purpose, such as to ensure the employee has no previous bad record. However, some scammers who seem to be a legitimate companies can use this information for illegal purposes.
If you need to conduct a background check on someone or an employer, please continue reading and call Martin PI at 1-800-577-1080.

What Do They Look for in a Background Check

What Employers Look For in Background Checks?

Background checks look at more than just criminal records. Different employers want to make sure that they are hiring the right person, and thus they make background checks for the following purposes;
An employer must first ensure a candidate is the same as they mentioned in the application. The companies get their name and address to confirm the information on their application.

Verify SSN

After verifying your identity, companies do a background check through your social security number. SSNs verify U.S. work eligibility. However, we recommend you never share your SSNs with any employer without proper investigation. Some such employers may be a scam, and they get access to your data for illegal purposes. If you want to investigate such employers, call us at 1-800-577-1080 and hire professionals from Martin Investigation Services.

Criminal History

The employers check the criminal history of employees through a background check. The background check looks for minor or major convictions and cases that are still going on. The report lists jail time and convictions. Employers care about employees’ criminal history. It’s very important for companies, especially when it comes to dealing with money. Customers, employees, or businesses shouldn’t be in danger because of any criminal tendency of an employee.
Some jobs also require applicants in other countries to have a criminal background check. Foreigners and companies that do business around the world may need it. The international criminal history includes any charges or records from other countries.

Resume

Employers look at your work history. Most people will tell you openly about their work history, but without a background check, it might be hard to be sure. The employment history is helpful for employers to find out if the applicant provided the right information or not. This is helpful for companies, as calling references for past jobs is inefficient and time-consuming. All of the past jobs are checked by employment verification.

History of credit

Credit history is part of financial background checks. It can give your information about credit card debt, car payments, mortgages, banking, and investing. Through this background check, the employer checks whether the person has some loans. It is also helpful to better judge the financial situation of the applicant. However, access to financial information is very confidential.

Licenses

Employers may need to see their driving records when hiring drivers or people to run machinery. A driving record check shows license suspensions, serious accidents, moving violations, and criminal charges related to driving. This way, the employer can judge whether the applicant should get the job.

Background Check Can be a Spam

While providing your social security number for background checks, ensure you know the company. You must first check whether the company legally exists when applying for a job or membership. Sometimes, online job applications ask for your SSNs for background checks. It has come to light that most of these websites are just web pages in their purest form. There is no actual organization standing behind them.
Especially such organizations do not provide a phone number that customers can contact. Some pages only provide fake numbers for the applicants regarding inquiries or concerns. Even fewer pages have an address, and among those who do, the majority have only a post office box. Since Martin Investigation Services often conduct background investigations for persons, companies, and legal firms, we can do a background check on the employer.

Final Thoughts

Before providing your social security number for background checks to anyone, it is essential to investigate the matter. The employer may be a fake or a scam who can use your background details for illegal purposes. Some of such employers are just scammers and software programmers, who then get access to your bank account details and hack your data. To avoid such circumstances, the only thing is to ensure that you give your SSNs to the right person. For this purpose, contact us at 1-800-577-1080, and hire our professionals from “Martin Investigation Services.” They will check whether the employer is real. If the employer is a scammer, our professionals will consult with the respective officials to take legal action against such platforms and save others.
