When it comes to staffing agencies and temporary workers (or “temps”), to whom does the responsibility of vetting a candidate fall? The staffing agency needs to make sure it is hiring skilled and qualified people so it can serve its clients effectively. When it comes to checking a candidate for things like criminal history, are staffing agencies expected to run background checks? Should the businesses that engage the services of the staffing agency run their own background checks on temp workers?Every company has its own standards for what is acceptable in a candidate—and those expectations often shift depending on the job—so there is an argument for companies handling the checks on their end. In this white paper, we will look at background checks and vetting responsibilities from multiple angles.
