Checking A Criminal Record: The Employer's Guide

For a small business owner, pre-employment screening is a crucial component of the hiring process.  Checking a job candidate’s criminal history can help you make an informed decision. Conducting a criminal background check, where appropriate, can help employers mitigate business risks like theft and fraud. This type of screening can be important for positions that offer access to sensitive financial information, roles that involve handling of cash and sensitive financial data, and those that hold significant security responsibilities.
