Hiring a dishonest employee, or one who misled you as to his or her identity and/or qualifications, can be extremely costly to your company. Costs associated with making a poor hiring decision have been estimated to range between half and double the respective employee’s annual salary. Proper screening will help you avoid hiring employees who may be prone to committing fraud and theft. Furthermore, you may be liable for the actions of an employee if you haven’t checked their criminal record.
Background checks give employers the critical information for making the best hiring decisions. Some of the common checks include: criminal background check, social security number verification, motor vehicle record, Patriot Act Search, and workers compensation. Many more are available, and GCSC can provide this service for you.
