Human Resource and Staffing professionals have specific challenges when implementing employee screening programs.

Along with finding the perfect candidate to help build your business, staffing comes with the burden of risk when it comes to hiring. Human Resources is charged with ensuring a safe and productive work environment. But oftentimes, regulations and bureaucratic red tape can keep you from the information that keeps your workplace safe.

At Peopletrail we provide you with the resources for a pre-employment background check that safeguards your workplace so you can:

  • Feel safe in the workplace

  • Hire confidently

  • Worry less about legal liability

  • Eliminate negligent hiring

Many customized HR and Staffing solutions may include the following services.

Peopletrail reviews credit histories with a credit bureau report from our 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 any possible identity or 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.

Our screening specialists manually search through jurisdictional court records in any of the more than 3,347 counties in the United States. These records provide quick information that is the most up to date. These cases held at the county level include information about felonies, misdemeanors, and criminal traffic offenses.

These reports contain state driving record information dating back at least 3 years and possibly up to 5 years.

Gain peace of mind by obtaining a driving record for all employees with driving responsibilities. This background screening also works as identity verification because it can verify a date of birth and middle name

Drug testing employees and applicants helps keep drug abusers out of the workplace while maintaining the safety of other workers. Our variety of services comply with all federal mandates and regulations. Our customized drug testing programs assist with pre-employment, random, reasonable suspicion, post-accident, return-to-duty, or follow-up screenings.

We manually check applicant-reported employment references.  Businesses often check the employment history of applicants to avoid resume fraud or simply to get input from a previous employer.

Peopletrail directly verifies 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, we only confirm the highest degree achieved.

Peopletrail provides a detailed and developed reference check that looks at personal and professional performance and relationships. Often overlooked by many companies, we consider this screening solution the best option for high investment candidates. This background screening solution ensures you hire the best candidate for the important roles of responsibility.

Federal civil actions relate to federal statutes including EEOC, EPA, Treasury or Securities and Exchange Commission fraud, civil rights, etc. These results may also include civil causes of action that cross state lines with dollar amounts exceeding $10,000.

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.

Peopletrail provides convenient fingerprinting services through our nationwide collection network. Fingerprinting can uncover criminal history left undiscovered by traditional screening methods. It also offers extra protection to help businesses meet industry guidelines, prevent fraud, and stay compliant.

Federal law requires that employers retain copies of I-9 forms for all employees. Employers must retain this form for 3 years after the date of hire or 1 year after termination. Failure to properly complete and retain the I-9 form may subject employers to civil penalties ranging from $100 to $1,100.

Peopletrail provides I-9 management for clients. This service allows employers to store and verify electronic I-9 forms for employees without the hassle of storing and maintenance.

Peopletrail provides up-to-date consumer-identifying information instantly obtained from confidential credit report sources. This search verifies the applicant’s social security number and identity. The report also supplies name variations, date of birth, current and previous addresses and former employers.

A social security number search for employment creates a soft inquiry to the applicant’s credit file that does not affect the FICO score or display to creditors.

Our dedicated screening specialists work with you to determine the best place for your searches. When necessary, a repository search frequently provides a cost-effective way to cover the entire state.

In some states, counties submit criminal data to a state repository. The data that can be collected varies by state. Some states may collect all data from all counties; some states may only collect arrest or felony data; some counties may not provide any data.
