Background Checks

Before hiring a new employee, get a background check.

Many public and private employers require background checks for employment purposes.  State law mandates that schools, day care centers, health care facilities, and others require such checks as part of the hiring process. Some individuals are also required to have a background check to obtain professional licensure.
