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.

Credit Report

  • Credit Report

A site inspection must be performed at the principal place of business of all end users that will be running credit reports on their employees. This step is not necessary if you will not be screening your employees credit. The purpose of the inspection is to ensure that the end user’s business facility is commensurate with the size and purported type of business listed on the membership application and letter of intent, and the identification and certifications made by the end user. In the event that an end user’s principal place of business changes, an additional site inspection must be performed within sixty (60) days of reseller becoming aware of such change. An end user operating from a home office may be approved by reseller only if each of the following conditions are met: (1) site inspection must confirm physical separation of the business from the living quarters: and (2) end user is listed in either the appropriate category of a reputable/public business telephone directory ( e. g., Yellow Pages, yellowpages.com, 411.com) or a national or state trade association or a current copy of the end user’s telephone bill reflects the same company name and address of the end user’s application for membership and the bill reflects commercial rate charges. Reseller must maintain a copy of the above-referenced listing(s) or telephone bill in its membership files. All site inspections must be documented, must demonstrate when and by whom the physical inspection was conducted, and must reflect the inspector’s findings. Such documentation must also bear the signature of the end user’s owner/officer/authorized manager who was present at the site inspection.
