Live Scan Fingerprinting Software for Employment Background Check

Live scan fingerprinting allows you capture and submit highly precise digital fingerprint images to meet your employee background check needs. Live scan is not only easier and efficient but also results in faster turnaround time.

What is Criminal Background Check for Employment?

A pre-employment background check includes but not limited to the comprehensive review of the financial records, education records, employment history, criminal record or any other past component of an individual that can potentially pose a risk to the employer, other employees or the organizational assets and resources.

The activity of background check is not specific to jobs or employments only but can be performed in many circumstances. For example, to buy a new house, cross an international border, for approvals in some financial services, to buy a firearm, etc., you may have to go through a background check process.

Employee background check is crucial to safeguard the organization, resources and people from potential threats that may be posed by people with criminal background. Performing the background check before assigning duties or granting access to resources can save you from many unforeseen and undesirable incidents that may arise later.

Employment Background checks generally involve verification of personal  details, education, employment history, motor vehicle report, credit history, arrests and prosecutions, medical history, drug screening, etc.

Some employers may even go deeper and consider checking what you post on social media, your social and professional network on websites and your online activity on public platforms.

Criminal background check for employment can be performed with live scan fingerprinting, in which your fingerprint images are captured and processed using a live scan equipment.

These images are then sent to the concerned law enforcement or regulatory agency to look up any past criminal records associated with the captured fingerprints.

Some law enforcement and regulatory agencies also accept ink based fingerprint impressions made on fingerprint cards. Ink based fingerprint impressions are easy to capture, however, they are not free from pitfalls.

Unlike live scan fingerprinting, ink fingerprinting does not and cannot involve automated quality checks, so there is no way to make sure that ink impressions are good enough to be submitted. They may seem visibly good, but may still get rejected.
