General Applicants

Conducting background checks on potential employees is quite simply a strong business practice which can save you a lot of time and money in the long run. You remove the unknown from the equation and know – prior to hire – any red flags which may cause disruption to your business or result in financial or legal concerns in the future. 

Problem employees often have a history of criminal behavior or employment issues. Uncover these issues before they become yours. Avoid hiring problem candidates and reduce your risk for high employee turnover, workplace violence, theft, fraud, and drug and alcohol problems in your workplace. Head off potential litigation which can result from employee misconduct, accidents on the job, or disciplinary actions taken against problem employees. 

Background checks additionally allow you to validate information in a resume or application, thereby ensuring that you’ve shown due diligence in your hiring practices, and removing liability associated with negligent hiring. The risk involved in hiring varies from position to position and from one industry to another. At PrescribeHire, we understand the potential ramifications of failing to perform pre-employment background checks and can recommend the appropriate background screening services for your business.

There are state and federal laws and regulations that dictate how and when background checks can be performed, as well as with whom the discovery can be shared.  Trust the professionals at PrescribeHire to protect your business interests by ensuring adherence to governing laws and regulatory statutes associated with the pre-employment background checking process.

Conduct a position-specific or comprehensive General Applicant Background Check and get the answers you need before you hire.
