Background Research, Inc. Employment and Volunteer Screening
Employers are legally liable for the actions of their employees under the “Negligent Hiring” doctrine. This doctrine holds an employer liable when they hire an employee that they knew or should have known could pose and undue risk of harm to others within the scope of employment. This doctrine applies to paid employees as well as unpaid volunteers. However that risk is mitigated when the employer has made a good faith effort to obtain information about the applicant and has acted appropriately with the information that they have found. The best way to comply with this is to do a comprehensive background check and check references for all employees before placing them in contact with the public.
Background Research, Inc. is dedicated to providing you with superb customer service, a timely, accurate and cost effective background report. Background Research, Inc. is concerned with an applicant’s integrity and honesty. By performing a legally permissible and legitimate background check, an employer can measure the integrity of an applicant by comparing what an applicant listed on their application, resume and interview response to the objective facts of a compiled employment screening report.
