Kyle Ginter Pre-Employment Background Checks


Leadership professionals like Kyle Ginter use background checks through their businesses to verify potential associates' backgrounds, including work history. What shows up on a background check depends on what type of background screening is performed, and for what purposes, explains Kyle Ginter. The most common types of background checks, and what they include, are listed below.


The following will show up on a criminal background check report (if applicable): Arrests Convictions of felonies and misdemeanors Court records (e.g. dockets, orders, decrees, judgement, etc.) Warrants Sex offenses Incarceration records


Under the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), criminal background checks must not contain any record of civil suits or arrests after seven years. Criminal convictions stay on a person's record indefinitely, however, California does not allow employers to see convictions more than seven years old (for most employment positions).


Social security number validation is used by employers to confirm a person's eligibility to work in the United States. This type of screening report will show the name and address history associated with a given social security number.


All states are required to maintain a sex offender registry, which is public information. There is also a national sex offender registry, which includes all state, tribal, and territory registries. Sexual offenses will show up in criminal background checks, as well as on the sex offender registry.


An employer can only check your credit report if you provide them with explicit, written permission. Employers cannot see your credit score, but they can see the following information: Bankruptcy Accounts placed for collection Loan information Kyle Ginter explains that under the FCRA, employers cannot see bankruptcies after ten years, nor can they view accounts placed for collection after seven years.


Each state has its own rules and regulation about driving records (e.g., some states allow employers, schools, volunteer organizations, etc. to check records as far back as 10 years, others only allow three years). Kyle Ginter explains that what shows up on a background check depends on who is doing the checking and why. Some employers, for example, might check every record available to them, but some might only run a criminal background check.
