According to the statistics maintained by firms who implement pre-employment screenings and background checks strongly believe that in situations where a firm does not engage in background checks it’s almost certain to hire someone with a bad criminal record in the long run.
The statistics by these industries reveal that about 10% of all screened applicants have some form of a criminal record. Although not every one of these people would be a danger or even be disqualified from being hired, some criminal matters can be serious enough to warrant disclosure. It is important to also know that there are different rules concerning the proper use of background checks and pre-employment screening in hiring.
Like the old saying, “a stitch in time saves nine”. Therefore conducting background checks is sure to bring piece-of-mind to the landlords and employers. For Landlords, a simple background check might not be enough to accept applicants. It might also be of necessity to run credit reports. Likewise, employers with regards to potential candidates needing employment and education verifications. This is done so as to ensure that the employee or the people that have been accepted to reside in your property are honest and responsible just like they attest to be on their interview resume or application.
