Background checks are requested most commonly by employers seeking to find
further information about people they are considering to possibly hire
as possible employees. These background checks are put in place to ensure
the employer is not hiring someone with a severe criminal history, or
someone who may put the employer’s customers, other employees, and
business at risk of any danger. They are most specifically used in jobs
involving children, schools, or other kinds of serious responsibility.
A lack of background checks can leave the employer at a great risk of liability
if another employee or client is hurt as a result. Employers need to also
be aware in case the possible employer lies on his or her resume, in which
case the references and history will need to be double-checked. If an
employee is revealed to have lied about his or her abilities or education,
the employer is at risk for appearing foolish, losing money, and risking
his or her business overall.
Background checks are also requested by landlords considering possible
tenants. The risks of having a stranger move into a property is obvious,
as it is essential landlords ensure the people they bring in do not have
any previous convictions or criminal history which may put the property
at risk. Landlords may also be liable if their tenant causes any harm
to other tenants, as it is the landlord’s responsibility to do his
or her best to make sure all are in an as safe as possible property.
