Employment screening has consistently proven itself as a realistic method to protect businesses and their corporate reputations from determined criminals. Conducting due diligence on potential hires, also demonstrates to employees and shareholders alike that management is serious about making the workplace safe and secure for employees and corporate property. Conducting employment screening makes good business sense and protects the corporate goodwill that the client has strived to establish.

Employment screening is a process of verifying information about an applicant or a current employee. It also pertains to assessing an individual’s capabilities with respect to the position he or she has applied for or is being considered for. Professional inquiries are conducted to verify, among other things, past employment history, educational accomplishments and the presence or absence of criminal activity. With respect to criminal activity, the screening process gives management the proper tools to identify potential problem employees before they are hired.

This proactive screening process allows an employer the opportunity to prevent a determined criminal from targeting their business. Any employer who deals in valuable commodities, financial documents or items of value, knows the damage that can be done by fraudsters and thieves. Once hired, the process of removing a problem employee can be extremely costly and time-consuming.


Employment screening typically includes any or all of the following:
• Employment verification
• Credit / financial history check
• Education verification
• Criminal / security check
• Reference check
• Reputation and / or skills assessment
• MTO/ driver’s licence abstracts
