In the pre-employment screening industry many different types of information can be useful in the hiring process. Criminal Records, Driving Records, and Social Security Number Verification are the most frequent search types. However, this does not mean you should not consider additional searches. Conducting an employment verification has the potential to be the most useful search in your screening arsenal.
Applicants may obtain false credentials from online diploma factories, or simply fabricate international institutions that they believe the employer will never take the time to research. On July 16, 2015 the United States Office of Law Enforcement Security released a document indicating that they had employed a man in a high security clearance position for more than five years before realizing that he had submitted fake credentials with his application.
