National Federal Criminal Background Check for Employment

A Nationwide Federal Criminal record search directly accesses Federal District level records in the United States. This search will identify criminal convictions at the Federal Level, which could include:

  • Tax Faw Violations
  • Securities and Exchange Commission violations
  • Embezzlement
  • Terrorism
  • Interstate Drug Crimes
  • Weapons Violations
  • Mail/Wire Fraud
  • Civil Rights Violations



Cases filed at the federal level involve federal crimes or criminal acts that occurred on property owned by the Government. A Federal Criminal History Records Search will reveal serious “white-collar” crimes that wouldn’t be found at the county level.

A Federal Criminal Record Search is a vital part of a national criminal background check for employment. This search is especially recommended for all high-ranking, financial, executive and managerial positions. Identifiers that appear in federal criminal records include filing date, case number, charge, disposition, disposition date, and sentencing information.

Since federal criminal records are held at the state level more “hits” will be generated if a common name has been searched, this is why it’s imperative that when requesting a federal criminal search a full name including middle name is documented to identify if in fact a “hit” belongs to the subject of the report.
