91% are doing background checks. This is why.

In an Ohio-based Employers Resource Association* survey…

91 percent are using background checks. That seems high. But what s.p.e.c.i.f.i.c.a.l.l.y. does that mean? A Google search? Police check? Facebook search? LinkedIn page view? A 2 minute call to the a previous boss? But more importantly, what do you do when you receive an adverse result? To navigate potential legal pitfalls including employment discrimination, pass any and all of the results over to Cleard.life so we can interview the Candidate, analyse and assess the concerns for you.

72 percent of respondents are drug testing applicants. That seems very high. If you aren’t physically testing, you should at least be asking: Why? 25% of substance abusers steal from their employers. Why not hand that line of questioning over to us as well?

20 percent of employers are doing credit financial checks. Living beyond their means, high debt levels becomes a motivator for white collar crimes. Remember, there is no central repository or verification check that delves into the current gambling habits of a Candidate, except our assessment.
