When you partner with Infortal to perform due diligence on those you’re hiring for your household, we perform a number of background checks and other types of verification. This is more than a standard employment background check. Other companies’ “standard employment background checks” typically only look at a limited number of items, including employment history, criminal records, vehicle license records, and credit history. While this can certainly highlight some areas of concern, it also leaves a lot of information out. You can find someone with a perfect standard background check who has dozens of red flags that were not discovered.
Only 23% of standard employment background checks found problems.
49% of Infortal Due Diligence found Significant Red Flags!
Infortal will vet information in a wide number of ways. We will look at criminal records, of course, but we won’t just look at convictions. We will also look at cases that were dismissed as well as arrest records. We will dig into civil cases to determine if the individual is litigious. If they have brought a number of lawsuits against others, especially against employers, they could be a litigious individual and may not be someone you want working in your household.
We also look at interstate bankruptcies and other cases that may have occurred in other states or even other countries. Standard background checks may only look at records in the state the individual currently resides in, especially if they have lived in this state for several years. They may have a string of bankruptcies and other activities in other states. Few people think to check other countries or even know how to access those records. Infortal will look into someone’s activities in every area they have lived in to check for dubious events. We also look into SEC violations and other financial fines or penalties the individual may have incurred.
Often, con artists and thieves will use multiple identities and aliases. We will check all of an individual’s credentials, educational history, and their previous employment history. This is another area where researching interstate databases and information from other countries can uncover contradictions in a person’s history or identity.
When we complete our due diligence on an individual who you are considering for a position on your personal staff, you will have a well-rounded view of who they are. If they have represented themselves truthfully, you will have confirmation that they are someone you can hire to work in your home. If they have not, you will have the information needed to consider if they are someone you want to take a chance on. At Infortal, we arm our clients with the knowledge they need to make an informed decision. One civil suit against an employer where the individual was clearly in the right may not be a red flag. Multiple civil suits, however, may indicate an individual isn’t as trustworthy as they appeared to be.
