Employers can greatly benefit from adding a civil record search to their background check offering
A County Civil Records Search reveals lawsuits of a non-criminal nature that an individual may be involved in as defendant or plaintiff. These cases can include bankruptcy, auto accidents, real estate disputes, and workers’ compensation mediation and arbitration. This search is a recommended best practice search for employees who will have access to company records and/or finances.
A search for civil disputes is useful for employers in the financial space as well as in executive screening, helping to investigate potential risks with hiring individuals with access to company assets and confidential financial records. This search can provide further insight into disputes between parties or businesses, aiding in the identification of hiring high-risk applicants.
