How to Screen a Potential Employee
Potential employees can be quickly screened online during the hiring process. A number of records, such as court and criminal records, can be accessed online and will provide you with valuable information about your potential employee.
Background ChecksScreening a potential employee has become quick and easy thanks to the number of reliable records that you can access online. A background check on an employee is a great idea before you entrust and hire him or her. During the hiring process, screening of the employee's background allows you to to check their credibility.
By researching the individual's records, including court records, criminal records and driving records, you can immediately discover if they are right for the job. All of these records can be located online. Potential employees often falsify their resume and application materials. With a background check, you can quickly discover if they graduated from the college they claimed or if they worked for a previous employer that was listed. This basic information can be discovered by going right to the source - accessing the university's web site or contacting the previous employer. More extensive screening will require you to research a number of records online.
Court RecordsCourt records are a good place to start when screening a potential employee. These records include criminal court and civil court records. You can also research property records within court records to discover if the individual has any outstanding debt. If the potential employee has ever been charged or convicted with a crime, you can discover information such as the warrant for arrest, the complaint, trial proceedings, trial transcripts, pleadings and resolution of the case. All court records are public, except for juvenile records and in special cases when the judge seals the records.
Driving RecordsDuring the pre-employment process, driving records are a good source for information when screening a potential employee that will be operating a vehicle. By screening the individual's driving record, you will avoid putting a hazardous driver on the road that can endanger the public and your property. If it is discovered that the individual has been at fault in multiple accidents, has been ticketed for reckless driving or has failed to pay fines, then it is not a good idea to employ them behind the wheel. Some information that can be discovered from a driving record includes fines and tickets, if fines were paid late or on time, DUI's and DWI's, traffic accidents and suspended licenses. Driving record information usually cannot be given to a requester without written constant from the individual for whom the information pertains.
