A crime record contains vital information that can be used to judge the character of a potential employee. Does your corporate job application ask if the candidate has been convicted of any crimes? Regardless of the prospect's answer, it is a wise decision to double check this information through the use of an extensive background checks.

Arrest Convictions

A crime record contains information regarding convictions of both misdemeanors and felonies. Previously we have outlined for you the difference between both offenses. To summarize, a misdemeanor requires less than one year of jail time and a $2,000 fine while a felony is a more serious charge and is accompanied with jail time of more than twelve months and one day.

More than likely, you would prefer that none of your employees have these charges on their records. Finding this information prior to hiring a candidate can save you a lot of time and trouble. A quick background check on potential employees can put your mind at ease.

Accessing a Nation-Wide Crime Record

Whether you choose to run a county-wide, state-wide or nation-wide search, all public record and relevant information will appear on this report. From DMV records, drug test results and sexual offenses, you'll know if any of your new hires are putting your business at risk. Don't spend a fortune on high-priced search firms. Instead, do the leg work yourself in a few minutes and you'll be happy with the result.
