Employees, who are in a gang, or other kinds of organized crime rings, might not actually be employed by you. You might think they are, but pre employment screening might say otherwise. That is, if a background check company conducts the employee background checks.
A background check company has the ability to decipher data that might lead to other questionable things the employee is trying to hide. A criminal history, as well as a check of previous addresses or acquaintances might show that this employee is associated with gangs, mafia, or other known criminals.
While not all employees are going to be criminals just because they associate with other criminals, many are looking for jobs at specific stores that the crime ring needs an insider. If they get one of “their guys” hired, it is infinitely easier for them to steal, rob and defraud your store, than if they had to try and convince one of your honest employees to help them out.
Even though you are supplying them with a paycheck, their loyalties are actually with the ring that has put them in your store. The fact that you are paying them to steal from you is just a bonus.
Employee background checks that go beyond a simple reference check can uncover some crazy situations that you might have never thought possible. Before you become a target for organized retail crime, do a little extra research before you make a hiring decision.
