The Difference Between A Background Check and A Fingerprint Check

When it comes to background checks, a common topic is the advantages of fingerprint background checks versus regular background checks. It may be surprising to note that for most companies, fingerprint background checks are often not recommended as a primary source of information. Fingerprint checks can supplement and support safety, they have significant shortcomings that make them poorly suited for employment screening.

Fingerprint databases were designed for law enforcement. As such fingerprint databases available to the public are often out of date are never geographically comprehensive. While some industries may find fingerprinting useful, many companies will find fingerprint checks an inefficient use of time and money.

Overall, name-based background checks are a better choice for minimizing hiring risks when provided by an accredited screener. Name-based background checks can be specifically designed for employment. In addition, name-based background checks simply are more comprehensive and compliant than fingerprint checks alone.
