What is Background Screening (Pre-employment Screening)?

Testing to ensure that employers are hiring qualified and honest employees and that a prospective employee is capable of performing the functions required by the job. The screening can involve criminal history checks, verification of Social Security numbers, past addresses, age or year of birth, corporate affiliations, bankruptcies, loans, drug screening, skills assessment and behavioral assessments.

Employment background checks are particularly important in care taking jobs, for example when working with children, the elderly and disabled individuals. A screening process to ensure an applicant has no criminal record is a legal requirement for these types of positions.
