Employment Background Check Compliance

Employee background check compliance is NOT optional!

Here's what HireSafe does to help our clients stay compliant!

  • Disclosure & Authorization – HireSafe provides all of the applicant notifications and disclosures electronically through our online QuickApp™ format. There's no need to supply paper forms!
  • Adverse Action – The HireSafe platform provides all of the required Adverse Action documents with just a mouse-click with an audit log.
  • Reporting Guidelines –  The HireSafe reports that you receive contain only that data which is permissible to use for employment suitability purposes.
  • Auditing – The HireSafe Quality Assurance (QA) team conducts random reviews and audits of each of our researchers' work product and report processing.

Our compliance objective is to keep our clients informed of the changing regulatory landscape as it relates to employment screening. We strive to be your HR partner just down the hall, not just another supplier.

FCRA Compliant and State Compliant Background Checks

FCRA compliant background check services and State Compliant background screening are both required for any background report used in the pre-employment consideration process.

Pre-employment background checks are different from other types of background checks because they must maintain compliance with FCRA, State, and EEOC rules and regulations. At HireSafe, we have a 20-year record of providing absolutely FCRA compliant and State compliant pre-employment background check services.

Be careful when searching for an employment background check company, as many inexpensive options are not FCRA compliant or State compliant. Doing business with a non-FCRA compliant service can cost you and your company fines, lawsuits, and more. Our services keep you compliant, especially our QuickApp and QuickApp Pro entirely online background check reporting system.

You can read more below about how this system works, but we separate the company from the potential hire and keep cloud-based backups of report authorizations and other paperwork to ensure absolute FCRA and State compliance. These formats are a high line of defense to save yourself from compliance nightmares.
