Background screens typically focus on a potential employee's history, including financial history, credit background, criminal record or sexual offenses, and vehicular and driving issues, if any. Checking every employee's background has become a standard practice during the hiring process, not uncommonly performed before the final hiring decision is made.

Company HR departments should make every effort to ensure their assessments and background screening procedures are thorough, efficient and also in compliance with all national and local employment laws.
