When looking into getting a background check for California employees performed, its important to understand that California is among the most restrictive regulatory environments to conduct a background check and California also has some of the most unusual rules on access to public records that are used in any quality background check for California employees.
Unlike many states, California has additional rules about the types of information an employer can use when screening an employee. These rules narrow the scope of what can be looked at and the length of time that an employer can look back. The California court system and public record system is also more difficult than many to get information from. This leads to many instant, web based background checks having to skip over important records because they are simply not available online, but these companies rarely tell you about all the places they are not looking into. Instead, the employer gets a false sense of safety believing that they conduct a thorough background check, when nothing could be further from the truth.
Small businesses in California or those who have remote employees living in California and don’t have a dedicated HR staff are usually at greater risk of getting the employee background check wrong or selecting the wrong employee screening provider to conduct the background check. Let’s face it, as a small business, many things are new and the owner / managers tend to wear many hats.
