How well do you know your employees (let alone applicants seeking employment)? Obviously, employees and applicants do not lay all of their cards on the table and tell employers everything about their backgrounds. Many employers therefore take the initiative to learn more, especially when considering applicants. This is not limited to calling an applicant’s references, though. Employers can look into other information about an individual’s background to help make an informed decision on whether to hire that individual instead of others. One key component employers often can use is an individual’s criminal history—whether the individual has been arrested for or convicted of criminal activity.
