USA-based compliant background check provider for 25 years.

HireSafe has provided compliant employment background check services for over 25 years. We're a 2003 founding member of the PBSA, and all our screening services are FCRA compliant and completed within the USA.

With us, you’ll never worry about your company’s data being shipped overseas to third-world countries, unlike many other background check companies. We value and guard the applicants' personal information like it was our own.

What We Do

We investigate your potential employees past and report it to you so you can make informed hiring decisions

The job search is highly competitive, and finding the best employees is not always easy. Our process helps you make an informed decision by confirming application information.

We first use the best possible information available to look for any record your potential hire may have. We search the federal, state, and county-level associated with the addresses and names provided by your applicant. For an accurate and thorough search, we go the extra mile and check for names your applicant may have used in the past, and regions your applicant may have lived in.

Employment Background check at the county court level

The county court offices hold most employment background check data, and each of the 3,200 plus county courts operates in its unique way. Some have extra charges associated with record retrieval, and others take longer to respond to requests. Regardless of their differences, if we find a record for your applicant with our cursory search, we must verify that at the county level to ensure there are no mistakes and to stay compliant with background check regulations.

We help you stay compliant with FCRA and state regulations

State law and the Fair Credit Reporting Act, along with other governing agencies, have many rules and regulations defining how to conduct employment background checks. For instance, some states only allow us to report seven years of your employee’s history.

We help get you rolling with DOT driving record checks & DOT drug testing

HireSafe offers truck driver background screening, entire DOT Compliant drug testing consortium programs in addition to extensive driver criminal record checks, Motor Vehicle Record checks (MVR Checks), and more.

We partner with you to navigate the employment background seas

Navigating the background check seas

Employment background screening ins and outs are not easy to navigate alone. State laws, FCRA guidelines, court charges, record confirmation, on-site credit report visits, and other intricacies all represent hazards that can get you caught up with fines, nasty lawsuits, or worse.

Our professional staff has the experience to make sure your company and your potential employees safely complete the process and remain compliant. We are available to advise you at every step of the background screening process.

If you have a question, give our California office a call, and you’ll be able to talk to someone who understands you and can guide you the rest of the way. No call centers, no automatic phone systems, just high quality and experienced staff with the answers you need.
