What to keep in mind when performing verification screenings

Checkr’s platform promotes fair and compliant practices with state of the art tools and technology. We are also your partner in education. When it comes to verification screenings, here are the primary laws and best-practices to consider.

To build a compliant background check process, you must understand the FCRA and regional and local requirements around denying a candidate employment based on a criminal record.
