Reasons why people frequently need a background check
Pre-employment screening and employee background checks are more common these days than ever before. Employers need to know who they are hiring and they have a duty to their shareholders, stakeholders and co-workers to keep everyone as safe as possible. Finding out the truth about someone using a background check is quick, inexpensive and allows an employer or H.R. Department to take the guess work out of hiring.
As part of Due diligence:
When buying a business or even a part of a business, one should always conduct a complete and detailed background check of the person or people selling the business as well as a background check on the business itself. With our American corporate entity, a company is like a person, it has a background of its own. A due diligence background check may also be used in cases where an investment is being considered in some type of project or venture. The reasoning for this type of background check is simple, to protect the investment and the investors.
Often, when litigation is commenced, an attorney will want as much ammunition as possible to try and attack her or his opponent. A background check can reveal all sorts of things about people that can be used to attack their credibility, truthfulness and to verify or refute the testimony that they provide. In criminal defense cases, many times a background check will be conducted on the accusers or witnesses to try and locate crimes of dishonesty to impeach their testimony.
When children are involved:
Basically whenever your children are involved, a background check may be in order. People will conduct a background of their children’s care givers, people they may be traveling with, people that live in the neighborhood who may appear suspicious, etc. etc. A background check is an excellent way to get information that a parent may need to protect their child.
Before a relationship gets serious:
Dating is one thing marriage is another. As licensed private investigators, we are finding more and more people who are in a relationship and are pondering moving into marriage who want to conduct a background check of the soon to be spouse. This is another great use of the background check to protect yourself. We have many people in their thirties and above who want to be sure. There is also a pattern that shows that the more well off you are, the more likely you are to conduct this type of background check, with the obvious idea behind it being that it will help to insulate our client from being taken advantage of by the other person. Unfortunately, particularly with out of state relationships, we do find people out there pretending to be one thing and being another.
When things go wrong:
Lastly, we have many people who call us for a background check because something has gone wrong. Someone has done something bad and now they want to know all about this person who has taken advantage of them or their loved ones. This type of background check will fill in the total picture and many times ends up being provided to your attorney, family or the police to assist them in fixing the situation.
