What is Employment Background Screening?
Employment Background screening is the scrutiny of relevant information requested by the employer and provided by an applicant. The screening process is initiated by the employer with the applicant’s consent as part of the recruiting process. Employment background screening is also commonly referred to as background checking, pre-employment screening, probity checks and security checks.
