Identity Checks and Verifications

If there's one thing that any business needs to be certain of, it's that the candidate they are interviewing for a position is who they claim to be. After all, if a candidate is misleading you as to his or her identity, they may well be misleading you in other ways.

An ID check is the foundation of any background check, ensuring that the simplest and most crucial claim is verified. That the person you're hiring is the person you believe you're hiring.

Identity Checking Using a Variety of Data Elements

HireRight's identity checking service verifies a candidate's identity by checking the ID document that you are presented with by a potential employee.

Our ID check system will check the identity document (such as a passport) and compare the machine readable algorithm against details such as a date of birth, expiry date or other data, in order to prove whether or not a document is valid. If a document proves to be false, we will notify you immediately, preventing you from hiring a candidate under false pretences.

Key Benefits
  • Effective identify validation
  • Legally compliant checks and investigations
