Posted by Ryan Howard on Wed, May 07, 2014

May 6, 2014 - VeriFirst Background Screening, LLC, a national leader in risk management and background screening services, has been selected as the primary employee screening provider by the National Football League’s New Orleans Saints.

The Human Resources department at the National Basketball Association’s New Orleans Pelicans (formerly the New Orleans Hornets) have used VeriFirst since 2009. In an effort to consolidate their vendor management, the teams (who have common ownership) looked to VeriFirst to drive cost efficiencies and compliance.


VeriFirst employee screening services include:

  • Identity checks (social security number verification and address history)
  • Criminal background searches (county, statewide, federal, national and international)
  • Employment, education and license verification history
  • Financial history (credit reporting)
  • Substance abuse

VeriFirst employs Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) certified employees and assists its clients in human resources compliance with FCRA, EEOC and other state and federal regulations. The company has been delivering risk management and background screening services since 2004.

“With our history with VeriFirst, we know that we’re working with a background screening company that we can trust.” said Mary Vinet, HR Generalist for the New Orleans Saints and New Orleans Pelicans.
