Reasons for Conducting Civil & Criminal Background Searches

There are a variety of reasons for conducting background searches on individuals and companies. These include:

  • When Hiring New Employees: It is important for companies to conduct background investigations before hiring employees in order to ensure that they are hiring honest and qualified employees. Additionally, conducting criminal background searches can reveal any history of arrest, violence, or other criminal charges. This will help employers ensure that they are providing a safe work environment for other employees. Finally, performing civil and criminal background searches on potential employees can also reveal employment and education history and verify legal employment status and certifications of these individuals.

  • When Accepting New Tenants: Landlords and apartment rental companies will often perform civil and criminal background searches of individuals or businesses before accepting a new tenant in order to protect their property, fellow tenants, and their financial interests.

  • Before Trusting Child Care Workers, Maids, & Nanny’s: Before welcoming strangers into your home or trusting strangers to provide care for your children, many individuals will perform a background search. This will reveal any dishonesty or undesirable information that the person may have tried to hide. In this way, civil and criminal background searches can protect you and your loved ones from harm.

  • When Starting a New Relationship: With the increasing rates of divorce and the changing circumstances of how individuals meet, individuals often choose to perform background searches on their significant other before taking the next step in a relationship to become more serious, move in together, or get married. A civil and criminal background investigation can reveal a person’s honesty and uncover any information they may have tried to keep hidden.

  • During a Due Diligence Process: When buying a business or investing in a business, a thorough background search of the individuals or companies involved is an important way to protect investors.

  • When Preparing for Litigation or Lawsuits: Civil and criminal background searches are often an important part of the discovery process or when preparing for litigation as these can reveal the credibility of a witness or defendant.
