Putting the wrong person on your staff can open the door to work-related crime and violence which can lead to costly litigation.

Conducting a thorough background check not only facilitates smart hiring decisions by providing a complete picture of the applicant, but can also significantly reduce an employer’s risk of negligent liability. The average negligent hiring jury award is over $600,000.

We provide the pre-employment screening background checks to help insure your new employee has the potential to be an asset and not a threat.
