The following is a list of the major industries represented by many of our valued clients.  There may be other industries not listed that better represent you.  Give us a call, let a dedicated account manager focus their attention on you, and your specific employment and background screening needs.

Construction / Manufacturing

In the construction industry, the demand to produce quality product quickly drives your business forward.  You need a variety of skill sets from employees you can trust and depend upon to get the job done right and safe.

  • Contractor/Contingent Workforce Evaluation
    Peopletrail provides quick and accurate evaluation of contractors and their employees.  Reduce your risk and cost and maintain your industry compliance with our dedicated account management team and advanced technology screening solutions.
  • Credit Reports

    Credit history is reviewed by obtaining a credit bureau report from a national credit bureau repository. We have on-line access to the three major credit bureau reporting systems. When an applicant is being considered for renting a property, or for a sensitive position, it is important that an employer or property manager have a clear and concise profile. Credit information is summarized for quick review and provides a detailed analysis of debt load and payment history. A credit report for employment purposes does not include FICO scores and is a “soft inquiry” that does not affect the FICO score or display to creditors.

    Credit reports can reveal factors relating to financial irresponsibility (i.e. living beyond one’s means, or consistent delinquencies). In addition to financial information, credit reports help uncover possible identity and resume fraud by revealing name variations, historical addresses, and past employment information.

  • Criminal Investigation
    This is a jurisdictional hand search of the court records in any one of the more than 3,347 counties in the United States. Access to these records is relatively fast and provides the most up to date information possible. Cases held at the County level include felonies and misdemeanors as well as criminal traffic offenses.
  • Drug Screening
    Clients choose drug screening services that comply with all federal mandates and regulations to assist with their pre-employment, random, reasonable suspicion, post-accident, return-to-duty or follow-up screenings.
  • Driving Records/Motor Vehicle Reports
    The Driving Records contains state driving record information dating back at least three years and possibly up to five years.
  • Employment Verification
    An Employment Verification is a manual check of applicant-reported employment references.  Businesses often need to check employment history of applicants to avoid resume fraud or to get input from a previous employer.
  • Education Verification and References

    An Education Verification is a direct verification of an applicant’s highest level of achievement: including dates of attendance, year of graduation, major course study, degree or diploma earned, GPA, and any special achievements or awards. Unless otherwise specified, only the highest degree achieved is confirmed.

    A client can avoid resume fraud as educational achievements are commonly misrepresented on a resume or employment application. Peopletrail investigators directly verify all information for our valued clients.

  • Global Homeland Security Search

    A Global Homeland Security Search is a search of a database compiled from lists provided by U.S. and various international governmental agencies of individuals who may be involved in terrorist activities, money laundering, illegal imports, fraud against government agencies, violations of federal banking regulations, and fugitives from justice. Information may include date of birth, place of birth, citizenship, employment or group membership or affiliation. It includes the following lists: Australian Reserve Bank Sanctions List; Bank of England Sanctions List; Debarred Parties List; Denied Persons List; European Union Terrorism Sanctions List; FDA List; Fugitive Lists- (FBI Most Wanted, U.S. Marshals Most Wanted, Secret Service Most Wanted, and the DEA Fugitives list); Health and Human Services Exclusion List; Interpol Most Wanted; Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC); Office of Thrift Supervision (OTS) List; OFSI (Canadian Sanctions List); Palestinian Legislative Council List; Politically Exposed Persons List; United Nations Consolidated Sanctions List; US General Services Administration Excluded Parties List; World Bank Listing of Ineligible Individuals.

    The Global Homeland Security Search screens for criminals that are dangerous or wanted by international agencies, rather than just those with criminal records. This background screening service may also serve as a quick international database search.

HR & Staffing

Human Resource and Staffing professionals have specific challenges when implementing employee screening programs.  There is pressure to hire highly qualified candidates and at times a large population of employees in a very short amount of time.  Additionally, the competitive environment of the staffing industry requires timely screening at a reasonable cost.  At Peopletrail we help you meet the demands of your staffing business by providing competitive prices with superior quality background screening solutions you can trust. Along with finding the perfect candidate to help build your business, you also carry the burden of risk when it comes to hiring. You can be held responsible for the actions of your employees when they are representing you.  There are laws that prohibit some information from getting into the hands of employers. For example, in some states if a person has been arrested, but they are not convicted, that arrest information cannot be used against them. If an employer uses that information to make a hiring decision the employer could be sued for discrimination. When you work with Peopletrail we provide Actionable insight you trust®. In other words, when you receive a background report from Peopletrail the data has been filtered, and scrubbed against all state and federal laws.  Each of our valued HR and Staffing clients receive a dedicated account manager that makes sure you hire the right employees and you remain compliant.  Many customized HR and Staffing solutions may include.

    An Employment Verification is a manual check of applicant-reported employment references.  Businesses often need to check employment history of applicants to avoid resume fraud or to get input from a previous employer.
  • Education Verification and References

    An Education Verification is a direct verification of an applicant’s highest level of achievement: including dates of attendance, year of graduation, major course study, degree or diploma earned, GPA, and any special achievements or awards. Unless otherwise specified, only the highest degree achieved is confirmed.

    A client can avoid resume fraud as educational achievements are commonly misrepresented on a resume or employment application. Peopletrail investigators directly verify all information for our valued clients.

  • Federal Criminal Records Search
    Records at the federal level may uncover potentially important criminal information that was not prosecuted or recorded at the county or state level. Primary causes of action include securities and tax law violations, immigration, weapons, interstate drug crimes and civil rights violations.
  • Professional License Verification

    Professional License Verification is a direct verification of a license. These include (but are not limited to) physicians, registered nurses, teachers, pharmacists, real estate sales and financing occupations, CPAs and attorneys. Information is directly verified with state or federal licensing boards and includes date of licensing, type of license, license number, expiration date, complaints filed, and disciplinary action taken.

  • Social Security Search

    This search provides consumer-identifying information obtained from confidential credit-report sources (A soft inquiry is posted on direct to consumer credit bureau disclosure). This search will assist in validating the applicant’s social security number. This identifies numbers not issued by SSA or that were filed with death claim. The report also supplies name variations, DOB, current and previous addresses and former employers. Identity variations may include aliases, maiden and misspelled names or names of consumers who have changed their identity (Compare this to information supplied on application for resume fraud). An FCRA version SSN Search for employment creates a soft inquiry to the applicant’s credit file that does not affect the FICO score or display to creditors.

    SSN Search offers the client up-to-date consumer identifying information instantly. They also help uncover possible identity and resume fraud by revealing name variations, historical addresses, and past employment information.

  • Statewide Search

    Our dedicated account managers will work with you to determine if a particular state repository is a good choice for your searches. When it is a good match for your needs, a repository search can frequently provide a cost effective way to cover the entire state.

    In some states, counties submit criminal data to a state repository. The data submitted varies by state – some states collect all data from all counties, while other states may only collect arrest or felony data. In addition, some counties may not provide data to the state, mainly due to lack of computer automation.

Tenant Screening

The dedicated account managers at Peopletrail help you with your tenant screening needs. Not only do you have a vested interest in renting to tenants with a great credit score, you also want to be sure that your community stays safe by renting only to those who have no criminal or sex offender history. Background screenings are about community safety and protecting your investment.

Peopletrail can help you foster a sense of safety and respect in your community, and prevent financial loss and damages that have come when renting to those with a sketchy past. We provide tenant screening, as well as a wide variety of tests that can help authenticate your renter’s background before they unlock the door on your property and enter your community.

Our customized solutions managed by a dedicated account manager may include.

  • Credit Reports/Bankruptcies/Liens and Judgments

    Credit history is reviewed by obtaining a credit bureau report from a national credit bureau repository. We have on-line access to the three major credit bureau reporting systems. When an applicant is being considered for renting a property, or for a sensitive position, it is important that an employer or property manager have a clear and concise profile. Credit information is summarized for quick review and provides a detailed analysis of debt load and payment history. A credit report for employment purposes does not include FICO scores and is a “soft inquiry” that does not affect the FICO score or display to creditors.

    Credit reports can reveal factors relating to financial irresponsibility (i.e. living beyond one’s means, or consistent delinquencies). In addition to financial information, credit reports help uncover possible identity and resume fraud by revealing name variations, historical addresses, and past employment information.

  • Criminal Investigation
    This is a jurisdictional hand search of the court records in any one of the more than 3,347 counties in the United States. Access to these records is relatively fast and provides the most up to date information possible. Cases held at the County level include felonies and misdemeanors as well as criminal traffic offenses.
  • Employment Verification
    An Employment Verification is a manual check of applicant-reported employment references.  Businesses often need to check employment history of applicants to avoid resume fraud or to get input from a previous employer.

  • Global Screening
    Peopletrail provides a wide selection of screening services in over 200 countries across the globe.  We work with our global offices and providers making sure government policy and cultural protocols are followed.
  • InstaEviction Records Search
    An InstaEviction Records Search is a database search of eviction records for tenant screening purposes. Eviction records do not show up on a credit report, so this search provides valuable information for a prospective landlord.
  • Residence/Landlord Verification
    Residence/Landlord Verification is a manual check of previous landlords or property managers to verify residence, payment, and other tenant-related concerns.
  • Sex and Violent Offender Report
    This search will provide you with peace of mind and help insure a safer working environment. Sex Offenders are required to register in the state in which they currently reside. However not all states provide information to the public.
