Top impacting factors

Improved regulatory compliance

During each step of employment screening, an employment screening provider helps with implementation of a compliant screening program. A provider with in-house, efficient compliance expertise, and intelligent built-in compliance tools can aid an organization to meet industry standards and state and federal requirements, which can differ from state-to-state and by job position, thereby creating added complexity for employers. With stringent regulations for employment screening, e.g., Fair Credit Reporting Act in the U.S., the HR professionals are expected to be aware about potential compliance challenges, especially during the employment screening procedures. An institute or organization could face possibly fine, legal damages, and loss of privilege without an efficient employment screening program.   

Discrimination concerns

An increasing number of cities and states, especially in the U.S., limit employers to enquire into criminal records and convictions. They also restrict employers to use other employment screening services, such as credit history, to evaluate candidates. Discrimination concerns are also associated with the adoption of employment screening services, for instance, if a particular credit history would disqualify an applicant, it must disqualify applicants of all races. Furthermore, employers are also expected to be careful to circumvent any use of background reports that may result in rejecting or hiring any class of employees based on gender, race, and other protected categories.
