Background checks

by on
in Employment Background Check,Human Resources

Q. When may an employer conduct background checks on employees and potential employees?

A. Employers are free to conduct background checks at any time, assuming they act consistently and don’t single out certain employees. Usually, employers conduct background checks after a job offer is made (and make employment contingent on the results of the background check), and in connection with a promotion or transfer decision.

If a third-party agency is used to conduct the background checks (as most employers do), you need to obtain a signed authorization from the employee and comply with the Fair Credit Reporting Act.
