Background Check Employee Screening is Usually Done by a Machine.
We understand that you likely don’t want to hear that, but it is the unfortunate way that the industry has developed. If you take the time to think about this, it’s rather scary! For the average employer who relies on background check employee screening services, somewhere in cyberspace, a machine is mindlessly chugging away. The machine is backed up by a legal document called an agreement which is full of disclaimers exonerating the machine for missing things or falsely reporting them to the client. No one reviews the report you bought. No one actually knows what the machine did. No judgement on accuracy is ever rendered. In short, the machine is driving the bus and it doesn’t matter if it crashes with you on it or not.
