Business Myth Busters: What Is a Certified Background Check?

In today’s business economy, background checks are a standard part of the pre-employment process. With so many options available, how do you ensure you’re receiving a certified background check? We tackle some of the myths surrounding the industry.

Myth: A certified background check is too expensive.
Truth: A low-cost or free report usually means the company is simply providing an instant report using a national database. Critical information may be missing, which could cost the company time and money later on.

Myth: A certified background check takes too long.
Truth: Mind Your Business, Inc. strives to provide reports in a timely and prompt manner, but we also take time to provide accurate and detailed information. Our goal is to equip you with the data you need to make an informed hiring decision.

Myth: All background checks are the same.
Truth: Does a bus driver need the same background check as a CFO? Both jobs are vastly different and require different job skills. A CFO background check doesn’t require pulling motor vehicle driving records, just as a bus driver doesn’t need his credit report checked. Ensure that you’re checking for the appropriate job skills with a certified background check.

Myth: I’m legally covered as long as I run any sort of background check.
Truth: Background checks must comply with state and federal laws, or you could be liable. Mind Your Business, Inc. has a Compliance/Credentials Supervisors who ensures our certified background checks comply with current and new state and federal regulations.
