When most people think of a background check they think of a simple criminal history check. In reality, a background check is much more than that. It’s the process by which you find your best candidate by looking at, yes, criminal records, but also education and employment history, civil records, references, etc. Each is a very important piece of the puzzle. A background check helps your company stay safe through the criminal history check. It helps ensure that applicants can do what they claim they can through employment and education verification. It verifies that applicants are who they claim to be and aren’t wanted internationally. Background screenings, background checks, pre-employment screenings – call them what you will, they help protect your company, your employees, and your clients.
Check2Hire employees and our nationwide network of researchers have an in-depth understanding of the various court systems, which allows us to quickly research criminal records and uncover information crucial to your pre-employment background screening process.

County Criminal Record Search – A majority of criminal records are kept at the county level, which is why a county criminal records search is essential to any criminal record background check. Check2Hire offers criminal research in every county throughout the United States.
Most counties provide felony, misdemeanor, and criminal traffic offense information. County criminal record search reports from Check2Hire include a case number, date of offense, filing date, charge(s), the type of charge and the outcome. Best of all, Check2Hire criminal records reports are easy to read – giving you the details you need at a glance.
Federal Criminal Record Search – Screen your applicants for crimes that fall outside state or local jurisdictions with a federal criminal record search, which can reveal violations like fraud, embezzlement, and kidnapping. Check2Hire offers criminal research in all Federal Districts in the United States.
USA Criminal Database Search – Expand the geographic coverage area of your criminal background search beyond the county level with this supplemental service. Check2Hire searches a proprietary database containing millions of records compiled from multiple jurisdictions in all 50 states. This database contains records from departments of correction, state court administrations, prison parole, and release files and probation records, among others. We then investigate possible records from the original source, giving you the most accurate, up-to-date information.
Sex Offender Registry Search – Discover if your applicant appears on a sex offender registry. Check2Hire searches a national database that contains sex offender registry data from all 50 states. Should a record be found, we then investigate further information from the original source.

A social security trace is the first step in developing a comprehensive background check. It is an extremely cost-effective tool that is used to identify an applicant’s address history and discovering any other names that they may have used in the past.
If you don’t use the address and name history provided in a social security trace, you have to rely on the applicant’s supplied information. A dishonest applicant with something to hide will be less than forthcoming about where or under what name he or she was convicted. Performing a social security trace gives Check2Hire the ability to lay out a road-map for conducting a thorough criminal record search.
