Identity Screen Checks
Candidates with a criminal conviction, bankruptcy, or other potentially dangerous or embarrassing event in their past may attempt to hide this information from you.
They may use a false name, date of birth, address, or social security number. This is why you may want to have each candidate’s identity verified before you continue with the interview process, especially if you are hiring for upper management or for a position that will work with large amounts of money.
What an Identity Check Does
An identity check verifies the applicant’s identity by checking the following:
- Full name
- Any aliases
- Social security number
- Date of birth
- Current and past addresses
Identity checks do not reveal any information regarding the applicant’s credit, financial history, or criminal history. The main purpose of this information is to check it against the information the candidate gave you to determine if they were being completely honest. If they are not, you may want to reconsider hiring them.
