A background check looks into a person’s criminal, personal and professional history to explore what validates or disproves their character and identity. A background check may delve into criminal records, employment history, civil records, personal references and an education check. However, this check may be broader or narrower, depending on the reason for the check and the client’s request.

What is a Background Check?
A background check is a process a person or company uses to verify that an individual is who they claim to be, and this provides an opportunity to check and confirm the validity of someone's criminal record, education, employment history, and other activities from their past. The frequency, purpose, and legitimacy of background checks varies among countries, industries, and individuals. An employment background check typically takes place when someone applies for a job, but it can also happen at any time the employer deems necessary. A variety of methods are used to complete these checks including comprehensive database search and personal references.
