After careful evaluation of the pros and cons, you have decided to conduct pre employment screening on all of your potential employees. To save some money, you decided to forego using a background check company for these employee background checks.
You figured that just about anything can be found by searching the internet with a little bit of digging on your own. That’s what a background check company charges for anyway, isn’t it- their time to dig up information- to surf the web?
Well, there are two missing parts to the puzzle that may cause you some problems. The first concern is how far you are going to go to get these histories and employee background checks– especially if this applicant has moved around at all.
The next concern is what happens if you dig up incorrect information on a potential candidate and subsequently decline a job offer to a candidate based on those findings. You (your company) can be held liable for that information and can be sued by that candidate for slander and other offenses in a court of law. Would you know how to fix that information if the situation came up?
This is the larger part of what you pay a background check company for. They are responsible for the accuracy of the pre employment screening they conduct. If there is a discrepancy, this company has the legal obligation to have it corrected in a timely manner.
