Standard background checks not foolproof—Try Internet, too

in Employment Background Check,Human Resources

When the Lima School District hired a new head football coach, the school conducted a standard background check, including reference checks and fingerprint screening by the FBI.

But shortly after signing the contract, the district discovered the coach was under investigation by the Kentucky Education Professional Standards Board. The district also had questions regarding some of his references. The coach resigned less than a week after he was hired.

The district superintendent said the problems uncovered were not criminal, and would not have shown up through standard background checks. But they were available on the Internet by searching under “football” and the coach’s name.

While the Internet is not always reliable, it can be a useful addition to standard background checks.
