This memorandum discusses the use of background checks on prospective and current employees and reviews the requirements of the Fair Credit Reporting Act, which governs the use of background checks.
SHOULD EMPLOYERS PERFORM BACKGROUND CHECKS?
Employers generally use background checks to verify the accuracy of information provided by prospective and current employees. By conducting background checks, employers may also uncover valuable information on a prospective or current employee that may affect an employer’s decision to hire, retain or promote an individual. Properly conducted background checks offer a number of benefits to employers, including lowering overall recruitment costs, decreasing turnover, protecting assets and the company’s reputation, and protecting the employer, fellow employees and third parties from theft, violence, drugs and harassment.
