Our screening specialists manually search through jurisdictional court records in any of the 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.

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.

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.  Businesses often need to check the employment history of applicants to avoid resume fraud or simply to get 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.

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 directly verifies professional licenses. These may include physicians, registered nurses, teachers, pharmacists, real estate and financing occupations, CPAs, attorneys, etc.

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

This search provides up-to-date 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.
