Establishing whether an employee has a criminal record is a crucial step in assessing the risk of bringing that person into your organisation. While not every crime would automatically prevent an applicant from being hired, having that knowledge allows you to make an educated decision.
You can use the results of a criminal background check to then assess the applicability of the record to the position’s level of responsibility, exposure to assets or customers, and other criteria.
Conducting a criminal history search that is tailored to the requirements of the position can save time and be cost effective in the overall pre-employment background screening.
Employers are increasingly faced with the challenge of undertaking background checks on overseas applicants and those who have lived and worked outside the recruiting country. HireRight can deliver various types of criminal record checks across the globe and is registered with Disclosure and Barring Service and Disclosure Scotland for UK criminal record checks.
