Pre-Employment Background Checks

Code: ND-1600.6500

Programs that investigate the backgrounds of job applicants (with their permission) with the objective of discouraging applicants with criminal records or falsified credentials. Most pre-screening programs examine court records relating to the individual's civil and criminal history, their driving record and their credit history; conduct drug tests; verify their educational records, previous work experience, Social Security number and professional licenses; and provide a report which summarizes their findings relative to job suitability.
