Positive Adjudication Matrix

Reduce manual work by up to 40%

Adjudication is a manual, time-intensive process that may subject you to legal risk if done inconsistently across different counties and their unique reporting methods. Checkr’s Positive Adjudication Matrix saves you time, increases your funnel, and helps you practice fair chance hiring by automatically filtering out records you decide aren’t relevant.

Adverse Actions

Workflows designed to support your compliance

When making a negative hiring decision based on information found in a background check, companies need to follow certain procedures. Checkr’s adverse action workflow is designed to reduce the heavy lifting for your hiring teams, give candidates an opportunity to provide context around their records, and support compliance.   

Why adjudicators love Checkr

Automated Compliance

Our compliance engine is built to account for federal, state, and local laws—even when they conflict. These rules are baked into the reporting process so all records that appear in a report are aligned to regulatory requirements.

Language Normalization

Background data is fragmented, to say the least. Each jurisdiction and county has their own rules and regulations, plus their own language and set of terms used for charges and dispositions. Checkr developed a language classifier so that you only encounter plain English on reports you adjudicate.

Modern UI

Gone are the cumbersome adjudication matrixes of the past. Checkr is designed to be intuitive and easy to use.
