Peopletrail reviews credit histories by obtaining a credit bureau report from a national credit bureau repository. We have online access to the three major credit bureau reporting systems.

When considering an applicant for a sensitive position, it is important to have a clear and concise profile. Credit reports can reveal factors relating to financial irresponsibility. In addition, credit reports uncover possible identity and resume fraud by revealing name variations, historical addresses, and past employment information.

A credit report for employment purposes does not include FICO scores and does not affect the FICO score or display to creditors.

We manually search court records in more than 3,347 counties in the United States. Peopletrail quickly accesses these records and provides the most up-to-date information possible. Cases held at the county-level include felonies, misdemeanors, and criminal traffic offenses.

Peopletrail helps keep drug abusers out of the workplace and maintain the safety of other workers through drug testing. Our services comply with all federal regulations to assist pre-employment, random, reasonable suspicion, post-accident, return-to-duty, or follow-up screenings.

We manually check applicant-reported employment references. This helps employers avoid resume fraud and allows them access to input from a previous employer.

We directly verify an applicant’s highest level of achievement. This includes dates of attendance, graduation dates, major course study, degrees earned, GPA, and any special achievements. Unless otherwise specified, Peopletrail only confirms the highest degree achieved, which is what is most important when it comes to education background checks.

Records at the federal level potentially uncover criminal information not prosecuted or recorded at the county or state level. This information can include securities and tax law violations, immigration, weapons, interstate drug crimes, and civil rights violations.
