Criminal Background Checks are an Important Part of Keeping your Business Safe

November 29th, 2016   •   Comments Off on Criminal Background Checks are an Important Part of Keeping your Business Safe   

When it comes to hiring new team members, there’s nothing more critical to ensuring the safety of your employees, volunteers, and your business than conducting thorough background checks. Searching for criminal records under aliases (AKA’s) is an essential part of the screening process.

Common Reasons Applicants Have Aliases

  • Changed name after marriage
  • Married multiple times
  • Uses a hyphenated last name
  • Dropped a hyphenated name
  • Uses a nickname

Applicants may not always think to provide a potential employer or volunteer organization with all of the names they have used in the past. Some applicants may even be intentionally trying to keep you from locating a criminal record that might affect your hiring decision.

Our criminal record specialists are trained to locate any names associated with an applicant’s social security number and sort through the long list of misspellings and nicknames to find true aliases.
