It only takes one felon to ruin your day. It used to be that employers had little difficulty obtaining criminal background checks. Now the laws are changing dramatically with many states and municipalities considering “Ban the Box” laws.
Background checks, be they criminal, credit, educational, or otherwise, have to be done by companies that fully understand the legal obligations and don’t get their customers in trouble because they don’t.
For over 10 years, I have recommended Global HR Research to my clients. They do a great job and I’ve never heard a single complaint. I have met with the president, Brandon Phillips, at their company on numerous occasions and know them to be a well-run operation. They rely on the law firm of Seyfarth Shaw to help them make sure you are advised properly.
