Compliance is the most important reason for conducting comprehensive background checks on potential employees. Compliance involves adhering to rules and regulations by the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), as well as state and federal regulations specific to an industry.

These regulations involve a stringent process that employers must follow or risk being fined. The FCRA outlines detailed steps employers need to follow to perform a background check. One important requirement is that employers obtain written authorization from candidates before starting the screening process.

Crimcheck recognizes that the rules and regulations of different regulatory agencies can seem confusing leaving employers wondering where to begin. Let us take this burden off your shoulder.

Crimcheck works completely within the guidelines of the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and Driver’s Privacy Protection Act (DPPA). Our reports provide accurate, up-to-date information that meet relevant Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA) and Sarbanes-Oxley legal requirements. Other areas of compliance include the Medical Privacy Act (MPA), Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) as well as all new privacy legislation.

We keep abreast of pending legislation involving industry trade organizations such as ASIS, SHRM, CDIA and PBSA. Crimcheck personnel hold FCRA certification through the CDIA and are board certified in Security Management through ASIS International with the CPP certification. In addition, Crimcheck ensures proper interpretation and compliance with new regulations through seminars, media alerts, and consultation with industry leaders and legal advisors.
