What are Employment Screening Services?

Employment screening services are used by organizations to make informed hiring decisions. With the right background check and candidate screening, HR teams can ensure they are hiring trustworthy, safe, and reliable employees.

An employee screening service can include verification of every detail of a job applicant’s background, drug and alcohol testing, and medical exams.

Many employers are required by law to screen employees. Industries that require background checks and/or drug and alcohol screening include transportation, medical and health care, childcare, financial services, law enforcement, government, and more.

Employment screening procedures are highly regulated, and providers must adhere to the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, Fair Labor Standards (FLS), Driver Privacy Protection Act, Equal Opportunity Commission (EEOC), U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, and more.

Benefits of Employment Screening Services

Hiring the wrong person can be costly and put an organization at risk. Choosing the right background check service allows employers to make more informed decisions about potential employees.

Background checks, drug and alcohol screenings, and medical exams can reveal a candidate’s character, experience, and physical and behavioral health. They can also increase applicant quality.

Employee screening also safeguards the workplace and existing employees from potential violence and reduces losses and liability tied to employee dishonesty, such as fraud, employee morale, and customer confidence.
