Candidate Background Check Red Flags

If there is one overarching reason why employers conduct background checks, it’s to discover “red flags” about prospective hires.

In other cases, it is a history of driver’s license suspensions or a bevy of lies on a resume.

In the latest white paper for, we look closely at the concept of candidate red flags. We explore how the responsibilities of a job can dictate whether a piece of a candidate’s past properly qualifies as a red flag, how employers can use different background checks to uncover relevant red flags, and how to achieve legal compliance while incorporating responsible background checks into the hiring process.
