If there is one overarching reason why employers conduct background checks, it’s to discover “red flags” about prospective hires. Red flags can vary significantly depending on the job, the candidate, and the employer. Sometimes, a red flag is a criminal conviction. 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 backgroundchecks.com, 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.
