Background Checks

What is BACKGROUND CHECKS ?

To obtain information on the whereabouts, identity, conduct or credibility of a person or company, business partners etc.

What we offer:

1. Pre-employment background checks

Pre-employment background checks are an integral part of the hiring process in companies, particularly companies that have highly sensitive work and information.

Employee private investigator background checks are usually done with the full consent of the applicant and before any contracts of employment are signed.

Potential candidates for high powering positions go through the process of having their full work history, education and qualifications scrutinised, in case they fraudulenty aquire a position and pay they are not qualified for.

Coverage of works :

  • Checking the identity of the individual
  • Personal and character references
  • Checking employment / employment history
  • Checking education qualifications
  • Special licenses
  • Reference checks
  • Arrest / criminal / court records
  • Sex offender checks
  • Medical checks
  • Financial status / credit reports
  • Property ownership

Likewise, in the lower ranks of the workforce, background screening and employment history background checks ensure a business gets what it has asked for.

2. Company Backgound

A private investigator background check on a company or business checks to see if the business is what it is and not just a front held up with all-talk and words alone.

This type of check, done on the business itself and not an individual, is beneficial when takeovers or buyouts or impending business purchases are contemplated.

The company assets, records and materials are scrutinized for their veracity to ensure the buyer is not being led down the garden path by con-artists or fraudsters fluffing up a failing or bankrupt business.

Apart from inspecting the actual company records it's also a good idea to focus on the owners or directors of the company

3. Prospective Business Partner - Background Check

Starting a new business inherently comes with risks that must be mitigated. Just like launching a new product, hiring a partner requires protecting your business against potential risk and failure.

The dangers occurring from business partners — such as suppliers, wholesalers, consultants and commercial representatives — can in fact have an enormous impact: illegal conduct by business partners can lead to financial losses as a result of fines, penalties and compensation payments.

There is the even greater danger of a possible loss of orders, termination of business relations and the tying up of resources as a result of impending legal action or organisational restructuring measures. As a matter of fact, companies not choosing and screening their business partners carefully are putting their reputation at risk.

4. Tenant Background Check

Being a landlord you are simply putting your property in the hands of total strangers. Hiring a private investigator to do a background check on a potential tenant can give you a feeling of security. Nothing is worse than a tenant doing a disappearing act with your rent owed or gutting the property, selling the fixtures, or even using the property as a brothel.

A renter background check should be done before any lease agreement is signed and most definitely before any keys are handed over.

5. Landlord Background Check

Similarly, with a private investigator background check done on a tenant, a tenant or renter may want to get a back ground check on a landlord.

Having the landlord from hell would certainly cause problems and hiring a background check private investigator to do a little digging can be the difference between happiness and hell.

6. Nanny Background Check

If you are in a position of having to employ a nanny or au-pair to help around the house and look after your children, or whether you've found a nanny candidate through a nanny placement agency, by word-of-mouth or through an online nanny recruiting website, we provides our assistance for parents to thoroughly screen potential childcare providers before entrusting them to care for their children in their private home.

Additional checks such as credit checks, and criminal records checks in the areas where the candidate has worked for the past 1-3 years may also be conducted. Some parents may also wish to conduct drug testing and psychological screening on nanny candidates prior to hiring.

It will be most adviseable to get a nanny background check done before any contracts of employment are signed. particularly if leaving the children alone with them.
