Background Checks & References

During the interview process, it is vital to substantiate all claims made by applicants to help achieve an ideal fit between the candidate, position and company. Job performance evaluations and overall work ethic descriptions will help you make the right decision during the hiring process. In today’s personal and professional climates, companies need to take every precaution to ensure their own financial and physical safety. Simple background and criminal checks can alleviate concerns.  The documents included in this section will provide an easy way to administer and organize necessary forms and documents.

If you are interested in conducting a background check, be sure you review the laws, guidelines and notices required by the federal Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) as well. Please also see the additional information available regarding Background Checks and the Fair Credit Reporting Act by clicking on the section in the left-hand navigation.

[Note: Many states also have laws which prohibit or limit an employer’s use of credit checks and/or prohibit discrimination based on credit history, so be certain to check the applicable laws in your state.]
