FCRA Compliance:


Infortal maintains strict compliance with state and federal regulations related to employment screening and background checks. We provide clients advice on improving and strengthening their existing screening programs for improved accuracy, improved efficiency (we obtain criminal conviction details right up front—no going back to the courts if a “hit” is found!).


We help our clients to understand the information received.


We proactively alert clients to developing trends in pre-employment screening and other areas that may affect the safety and security of their employees and their business.


We work closely to assist you with a variety of issues that may arise: such as uniform hiring criteria, no-hire policies & guidance, and workplace safety policies. These are integrated with advice from your company’s legal counsel.

Program enables great hires & keeps your workforce safer

How can you measure whether your background check program is successful in giving you thorough and accurate information?


During the past 30 years, Infortal Worldwide has found that statistical reviews for clients across all industries result in the following ranges of discrepancies between what their applicants show on job applications and the facts delivered by Infortal:


Type of Discrepancy Percent Range
Criminal Records 3% to 5%
Education 2% to 10%
Employment 25% to 35%
Driving Histories 5% to 8%
All Discrepancies 45% to 55%


NOTE: if your vendor does not report discrepancies this frequently, then they may not be doing a thorough check!

Beware of companies that report low discrepancy rates. We often hear of companies that report overall low rates of discrepancy data between 5% and 30%.

Based on over 30 years of statistics, you should see discrepancies on employment applications in the range of 45% to 55%.




We can help you establish a program for adjudicated results, removing the option for staff to interpret criminal conviction records. Understand and incorporate red flag concerns in all hiring decision points.

Clearly written HR policy is a first step in creating an effective adjudication program that can be widely applied in larger company environments.


  • Establish clear screening guidelines & hiring policy
  • Implement consistent screening standards across your organization
  • Eliminate objectivity from the hiring process
  • Ensure uniform decisions are made before hiring candidates
