Why get a criminal background check done?
The industries that benefit from using criminal background check
In this day and age, anyone who is dealing with children is a prime candidate for a thorough background check. Most schools today don’t limit this to the people who have direct access and responsibility for the children, but also for every substitute teacher, parent volunteer, bus driver, and teacher’s aide.
If you have employees working in a financial setting, it’s vital to screen them with a background check before hiring. Credit unions, banks, accounting firms, mortgage brokerages, and investment companies firms are all examples of types of companies in the financial arena that need this extra screening criteria.
Do you run a bed and breakfast, quaint inn, hotel or small motel? If so, you most likely have housekeepers that are armed with a key to gain access to your guests rooms — and it would be more than appropriate to conduct a criminal background check on these and other hospitality employees.
