How is background check information used?

What are you using my background check information for?

Have you ever wondered, how is background check information used? Well, background check information is used to verify the statements of the prospective employee or tenant, as well to alert the employer or landlord to potential safety issues. Employers and landlords have an obligation to exercise reasonable care in the hiring and leasing process. For example, a child day care center needs to know if an applicant has an undisclosed criminal background.

Basically, any background check information collected by HireSafe and presented to your employer can only be used in the employment process. Potential employees must give their authorization to use background records for their employment considerations and that is all employers are allowed to use it for.
