Employment Screening

Employment background checks are important to prevent negligent hiring claims and employee turnover. To save time and money on employee background screening, we recommend running background checks after presenting the applicant with a contingent job offer. Running a basic background check, including Identity Verification and a Criminal Background Search, is a good way to narrow the candidate pool. Once there are only a few candidates, then other screens can be run as they relate to the job responsibilities. Always, always get applicant consent and authorization before running a background check.

Tenant Screening

Tenant screening helps landlords and property managers reduce the risk of unpaid rent, legal battles and turnover costs. From multi-family housing to student housing, VeriFirst provides screening services to help make tenant decisions easier. As a bonus, our sister company BYL Collections, also offers debt collection services and will track down tenants who have skipped out on paying their rent. As with employment screening, always, ALWAYS get applicant consent before running a background check.
