This web-based service orders your Background Check and delivers the results to the company you have applied with. You DO NOT need to be a client to order a Applicant Check. Because the requirements are different from company to company, you must start by entering the company’s code which we use to determine the appropriate checks to run.
If you do not have a code, please contact your Human Resources office or contact us.
WHAT WE DO
The checks that we perform are mandated by your company and vary from company to company. They generally include criminal background checks and sex offender, adult abuse, or educational database searches.
Once the search is complete, we send a copy of our findings to the appropriate department at your company.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?
Our investigation of your background can take anywhere from 24 hours to several weeks.
The US court records system is highly varied from state to state and is usually not centralized. In order to research your criminal history, we first research you to find the locations where you have lived. With these locations, we find the courthouses (usually county our state courts) which house court records for the courts with jurisdictions in these areas.
We then dispatch court runners to the county seat or state courthouse in each of these locations. Many locations have a computerized index at which the court runners can search for criminal records by name. This creates a list of possible criminal records, but the researcher doesn’t yet know whether they’re you or someone who shares your name.
The next step in the process is to request the actual court records for all court cases the researcher found in the index. Some courthouses house these records onsite and can provide them to the runner while he’s there. Other courthouses must order the records from an archive site which generally delivers the records to the courthouse in 1-3 days.
Once the researcher has these records, he compares your identifying information (usually your date of birth and/or SSN) to that on the court records. All records for other individuals are discarded, and any remaining records are reported to you and your company.
