backgroundchecks.com can contact both business and personal references to obtain a more subjective look than provided from an employment verification. Reference checks can save time and money by identifying people who are unsuitable for your organization, help you confirm personal qualities such as dependability, integrity, character, and work ethic, clarify gaps in employment history, and determine if the person is a good fit for the company’s culture.

Why check references?
While an employment verification will check basic facts about the subject's job(s), it does not provide true verification of their experience and skills. With our reference check service, you gain access to more complete and relevant information about the subject's actual responsibilities, accomplishments, and behavior, allowing you to make a more informed hiring decision.

How does it work?
backgroundchecks.com uses a structured process to check references your final candidates and can talk to co-workers, the past managers, and people that reported to the subject and anyone else who knows the subject. A thorough reference check script can identify inconsistencies between various references and the claimed experience on a resume. During the process we will gather information that will provide you with a more in-depth understanding of the quality of your subject, as well as strengths and weaknesses that are relevant for your organization. You can save yourself time during the interview process by out-sourcing reference checks to us.

What special restrictions apply?
A reference check usually results in an investigative consumer report under the Fair Credit Reporting Act. Investigative consumer reports require special disclosures and authorizations under both federal and many state's laws.
What's included?Each reference check report includes a single reference's response to the check.
