Why ScreenThem® Background Investigations

Employers of every size are turning to ScreenThem® to perform background checks to avoid or minimize hiring risks. The law requires employers to exercise due diligence during the hiring process. If an employee commits an act of violence in the workplace or elsewhere, the employer may be held liable if it is shown the employer knew, or should have known, the employee’s propensity towards violence.

Become Mindful

Serious attention and effort should be made by the employer to determine if the applicant has a conviction record for a serious criminal offense. If the applicant has been deemed guilty of such a serious crime or the repetition of such a crime, the hiring or retention of such an applicant could result in a civil lawsuit for negligent hiring and retention. Should the applicant commit a similar crime against a fellow employee or other person while under the employment of the company, the employer may be held liable.
