Why Do Employers Conduct Background Checks?

Employers conduct background checks for a variety of reasons, including:

  • To ensure that potential new employees have the qualifications they claim to have.
  • To verify that potential new employees are being truthful about their work history.
  • To check for any red flags that may indicate a potential new employee is not a good fit for the job or company.
  • To learn more about the potential new employee’s character and work ethic.
  • To protect the company from potential liability issues.
  • To help the company avoid hiring individuals who may pose a risk to the company.

Frequently Asked Questions

There is no legal requirement to carry out pre-employment screening checks in the UK or Isle of Man, although employers may wish to do so as part of their recruitment process and apply best business practices.

The average time to complete a pre-employment background check is between 10 and 12 working days.

There are many reasons why you might outsource background screening. Perhaps your company doesn’t have the internal resources to do this type of work.
