Will a Dismissed Case show up on your Background Check?

If a felony case is dismissed will it show up during a background check?

This question was posted recently on a popular Q&A site and we shared our take…

“In my experience, yes the case will show up. Now, the question is will that case show that it resulted in a dismissal? The answer here is, it should. The problem is that sometimes court records are not updated as frequently as they should be or dispositions (which a dismissal is) are not listed or recorded in a timely matter. That is why it is best for anyone who is looking for a job and has such a case in their history to check the court records first. If your dismissal is not recorded, you should do the following: request that the court update their records and obtain any documentation you can to verify the dismissal of your case. This way you can be proactive and provide this information to your potential employer before they discover it during the background check.”

Check out the original question and additional answers here!

Many people, especially those looking for a job, wonder exactly what will show up during a background check…and that is particularly true when it comes to criminal history.

Checking court records is a part of the vast majority of employment background checks. Good screening companies will access records directly from the courts to determine whether the applicant has a criminal history and will include those findings in their report.

If a criminal history is found, it can include: 

  • Cases were no disposition has been listed
  • Cases still pending disposition, often labeled as “Active” cases
  • Cases with a final disposition of guilty, not guilty, or dismissed

While these cases should be considered differently by employers, they will all be discovered during any good background check.

Learn more in “Do Not Guilty Cases show Up during a Background Check?”.

The question then becomes, what can and will be done with this information when it comes to the hiring process? 

There are clear parameters on how employers can consider a criminal record when making a hiring decision. One of the most important of these guidelines is that employers are to use only convictions, not arrests, to make their employment decision.

An arrest alone simply does not prove criminal conduct. It is important to keep in mind that excluding someone based on an arrest record that is not job related or necessary based on your business can violate an applicant's Civil Rights.

However, an employer may make an employment decision based upon the conduct underlying the arrest. The key is to substantiate the facts of the arrest and determine if the conduct that occurred renders an individual unfit for the position. In this instance, the conduct, not the arrest, is what is relevant.

In contrast, a conviction is a better indicator that a person engaged in illegal activity. 

And even when it comes to those convictions, not all crimes should be considered equal. As we have explained in previous blog articles, the EEOC has issued numerous guidelines on how those criminal records can fairly be used and the importance of fitting the background check to the job (see them here and here).

To be safe, employers should only consider convictions, not arrests when making their hiring decision. When you have evidence of a conviction (especially those verified through a quality background check company), you know the record is that of the applicant and you know the outcome of the case.

Only then can you make a truly fair and informed determination of the applicant’s suitability for the job.

Learn more in “Why Checking an Applicant’s Criminal Past should be about Conviction, not Arrests!”.

When it comes to what will be discovered during the background check, the bottom line is this ~ no matter what kind of criminal history information may be uncovered, most employers would do well to only consider convictions when making their employment decision. It is simply good business practice…and the best way to hire!

How Long will Your Background Check Take? Find out Here!

Do You know how long your Background Check will take?

Questions concerning Employment Background Checks are common. Job applicants often want to know exactly what employers are looking for, what will they really check, and even what can be discovered that may keep them from getting offered the job!

But it doesn't stop there. Wondering how long it will take to complete and when the potential employer will get the results is often the most frustrating.

These concerns are not surprising. Applying for any job can make a person anxious, and having to undergo a background check only adds to the problem.

So when this question popped up on a popular Question & Answer site, we weighed in ~

“How do I know if my employer got my background check back?”

“Depending on the scope, a good background check can take anywhere from days to weeks to complete, and even longer if security clearances are involved. Most potential employers will contact the applicant once the check has been completed and reviewed. This wait can feel like forever to job applicants. Just know that delays are common and can happen during any employment background check. Court record issues or the need for manual record checks, trouble reaching a reference, and even errors on your resume can cause your background check to take longer than usual. The best thing you can do is to keep in regular, possibly weekly, contact with the company’s HR department or your original company contact”.

Check out the original question and other answers here!

As is often the case, the more you know going in, the better.

When a company orders a Background Check on on a potential employee, in many cases they are completed within 2-3 days. Depending on what needs verified, it can even take as little as 24 hours.

However, there are times when circumstances delay the process. These issues can range from encountering incomplete court records that require more research to not getting the responses needed in a timely manner. 

No matter what the case, it can be frustrating for all parties involved.  

That is why it is best to be aware of these potential delays and understand what can be done, if anything, to get your check back on track.

These are the most common reasons a background check can be delayed:

  1. Resume and Application Errors
  2. Timing of your Request
  3. Manual Court Checks
  4. Individual Court Dynamics
  5. Employment and Reference Checks
  6. Incomplete Case Information
  7. Power Outages and System Maintenance
  8. International Requests
  9. Government Shutdowns
  10. Changing Legislation

Learn more about each and what you can do to mitigate their impact on your background checks here!

While most background checks will not be affected by many of these factors, it is always best to understand what they are and what you may be able to do about them!

Job applicants can often feel like they have no control over the background check process. But that is not the case. Delays due to resume and application errors and past employment and reference checks can all be mitigated to some degree by you, the applicant.

Let’s start with the resume. 

The best thing that anyone looking for a job can do is to be proactive and get their resume “Background Check Ready” long before they even apply!

When you are in the midst of a job search, one thing you can count on is that some type of background check will be part of the equation. Most employers will check to see if you have the education, skills, and past experience needed for the job ~ and your resume will most likely be their first impression of you and your skills!

That is why making sure your resume is completely truthful is the best start, and that begins with verifying that all the information you list is clear and accurate ~ and it will go a long way in helping your background check go as smoothly as possible!

Follow these 5 Rules to Get your Resume “Background Check Ready”:

  1. Make sure your Resume is free of typos and spelling errors and be as detailed as possible
  2. Never List a Degree you haven’t earned
  3. Make sure all past employment are accurate
  4. Make sure you know what your past employers will say about you
  5. Be ready to mitigate any employment “gaps” or inaccuracies

Discover more about getting your resume ready for a background check here!

When it comes to listing your Employment and Personal References, it is once again best to take charge and know in advance what former employers and references will reveal.

While some job applicants may believe they know exactly what information a former or current employer will share, many are most likely not sure.

There are often laws that can limit what employers can say about your job performance. Then there are also companies that choose to place parameters on that information and will only verify dates of employment and most recent job title.

But that is not always the case.

So, what can you do to give yourself a heads up on what past employers will share?

Do a little research! Find out the laws in your state and locality governing employer background check guidelines, along with any state and locality where you may have worked!

You should also check directly with the employer yourself. Find out what their company policy dictates and do a background check on yourself to verify that.

Learn more in "Do You really know what your Employer will say about You?".

You also need to take similar precautions with your References.

Don’t fall prey to one of the biggest mistakes a job seeker can make ~ listing your former employers, supervisors, or professors as references without asking them first!

This simple step can save you from the embarrassment of a less-than-stellar recommendation and give your references a most welcome heads up.

In fact, this common courtesy can greatly increase your chances of getting the job. 

Your references will have had the opportunity to gather their thoughts beforehand and will not be caught off guard ~ giving you the best chance of your references working for you instead of against you.

When references are contacted unaware, they often stumble. Dates and titles elude them. Specific projects you may have worked on or tasks you lead are unmentioned. This can lead to an unimpressive reference report.

These 7 Tips will help you get the most out of your References:

  1. Make a List
  2. Check it Twice
  3. Spread the Word
  4. Fill in the Details
  5. Do a Double check
  6. The Final Draft
  7. A Thank You goes a Long Way

Check out more about these tips in “Your References ~ Be Smart, Ask First”!

For these reasons, and many more, when it comes to the employment background check, it is always best to be forward thinking and informed. 

Your best defense against delays is to know in advance what a background check entails and what steps you can take to help the process go as smoothly and quickly as possible.

Is the Personal Information of your Employees Safe?

Is the personal information of your Employees Safe?

Safeguarding the Personal Identifying Information (PII) of your current and former employees, along with those applying for a position, is extremely important.

There are legitimate times that a person is required to provide personal details about themselves. It may be during their application for credit or a loan, a rental application, or even when they are the subject of a background check. This personal information can include their date of birth, social security number, and many other things that can identify them as the person they say they are. 

However, the threat of that information getting into the wrong hands worries many. It exposes individuals to possible identify theft, which can cause long term ramifications to their credit, security, and future employment.  Many times people don’t even know they have been compromised until some red flag arises.

That is why it is understandable that job applicants are often reticent about sharing this information when it comes time for the employment background check.

As a company and employer, what can you do to alleviate their fears?

Keeping both your clients' and employees' personal information safe is the responsibility of every company, even a small business. That is why it is important to put practices in place from the beginning that will help!

That duty begins with guarding the Personal Identifying Information (PII) of your employees and clients.

As an employer, you are required to develop and implement a policy for the safe handling of PII. You must also include the rules of behavior expected, including the consequences for non-compliance.

You should also recognize that employees are often the “weak link” when it comes to safeguarding PII.  

Making sure they are both thoroughly trained and monitored helps. 

Steps to Help you safeguard PII:

  • Determine if Information is PII
  • “De-Identify” your Records ~ removing as much PII from your records as possible
  • Anonymize your Information ~ consider substituting a code for PII
  • Control / Limit Access to PII ~ limiting the number of people who have PII access
  • Onsite Location of PII ~ keep all PII records onsite with limited accessibility
  • Confidential Transmission of PII
  • Develop an Auditing Program ~ ongoing monitoring of potential PII breaches

Learn more about what constitutes PII and how to safeguard it in “Tips to help you Safeguard Personal Identifying Information in your Small Business”.

Does Your Company have a Privacy Policy? Find out Why You Should!

Establishing sound rules regarding the PII of your job applicants and existing employees all starts with creating a good Privacy Policy!

Creating a sound Privacy Policy is a crucial step in ensuring their PII is handled safely and thoughtfully.

Your Privacy Policy, or Privacy Statement, should have two versions. One that will appear on your website and one for the Owners, Managers, and Employees of your company.

Discover what needs to be included in each and why here!

However, no matter what you include in your PII Policy, the best way to protect your employees, clients, and your company is to practice the “minimum necessary principle”.  

The goal is to minimize the use, collection, and retention of PII to the least amount necessary.

This includes the previously mentioned limiting of access to PII. It also means the proper destroying of records physically, shredding for example, and digitally (sanitizing).

Creating sound PII handling procedures, along with a company Privacy Policy, makes sense.

It is not only vital to your applicants and employees, it is good for your company and your reputation…and that is priceless.

Looking for a Job? Follow these Tips to help You Optimize your Resume and Application Now!

Applying for a job can be exciting…but it can also be stressful. You worry whether your application or resume will create interest and then whether you will be called in for an interview at all.

But if you are offered the job, one thing you can count on is that you will be subject to some kind of background check. And while you may think you have little control over this part of the process, you could not be more wrong.

There are definite steps you can take that will not only expedite the process but also paint you in an even more favorable light with any employer.

And those steps start with your resume and application.

Over the years we have seen how incomplete or error filled resumes and applications add time to the screening process. They can even take an applicant right out of the running…even if they have aced the interview! 

The best way for you to avoid this happening to you is to take steps now to ensure that your resume or application is as complete and effective as it can be!

Whether you provide a prepared resume, need to fill out an application, or both, it is important that before you start you have on hand all the information you need...and following these tips will help!

As a general rule, the more precise your resume and application the better. It is also important that if filling out an application on site instead of online, that your writing is neat and legible.

Here is a list of the information you need ~ 

Employments ~ When listing the jobs you have held, you should be ready to provide the following information for each:

  • Name of the company, their full address, and company phone number and website
  • Exact dates and title of the position(s) you held
  • Names of 2 sources within the company that can verify your employment (direct supervisors, HR, co-workers) and up to date contact information for each, including both their phone number and email address.

References ~ provide the following information for each:

  • Name / address
  • working contact phone number and email address
  • your relationship with the reference (personal, professional, both)
  • how long you have known the reference

Education ~ start with your most recent degree, diploma, and certification(s) and list the following:

  • name, location, phone number and email address of the department within the institution that provides verifications 
  • date of graduation or dates of attendance

Addresses ~ you will need to list anywhere you have lived in the past 7-10 years (whichever is required by potential employer) starting with your current address and working backwards:

  • your full addresses including house / apartment number, street name, city, zip code
  • dates of your residency
  • whether you owned or rented the property

Taking the time to have all this information on hand prior to submitting your application or resume makes sense.

Not only will it help you complete the application more quickly, it will make your resume more thorough. it will also show you to be prepared and professional and help your background check run as smoothly and quickly as possible.

And that is good for you and your potential new employer!

How do Employers Verify a Degree?

Do you know exactly how, and more importantly why, employers verify their applicants’ degree, graduation, or other education?

This question was recently posted on a popular Q & A site and we decided to weigh in…

“How do employers check for degrees?”

“Verifying a degree / graduation is one of the easiest and most basic things checked by most employers. The best source for this information is to contact the university / school directly. Most records are held by either the Registrar department or, especially in the case of high schools, in the Guidance or Student Records department. If your only need is to verify the degree, and not a person’s full academic record, it is sometimes possible to verify that verbally. There are times when the information needs to be faxed or mailed and they will then require a nominal fee. 

However, if more in depth information is needed, or the institution has contracted with an outside verification service, you will have to follow that service’s steps in order to get the information you need. Oftentimes these services will require a fee to access the information and sometimes a signed release from the subject of the search is also needed (which you should always obtain before any background check anyway). No matter the method, verifying any degree, graduation, or professional certificate claimed by an applicant is key to making a sound hiring decision. Not only will it help assess their training, knowledge, and qualifications, it will also go a long way towards verifying an applicant’s honesty ~ and that is a goal of any good background check.”

You can find more answers to this question here!

Verifying an applicant’s education is a great first step in evaluating any prospective employee ~ and a good employer understands this.

Hiring someone who lies about their education or training can pose numerous problems for any business. 

It can lead to having an employee who is unqualified for the job. Or, if and when that lie is discovered, it can tarnish a company’s reputation with their clients, customers, and other businesses. 

Doing a simple Education verification check solves these problems.

“Education is one of the most frequently embellished ~ face it, lied about ~ items on a resume. The lie can range from the type of degree earned to whether a degree was even earned at all.

And if having a degree, especially a specific degree, is necessary to the job you are hiring for, then making sure your applicant indeed fills that requirement is good business.

For some jobs, having a degree may not be necessary. In that case companies are more concerned that their applicants have at least earned their high school diplomas or a GED.

Either way, it is important that you take the time to verify that the education listed by your applicant is true.

It should be the first step in making sure they have the training your position needs”.

Find out more about why businesses need to verify an applicant’s education and what they will find in “Hiring? Why You need to verify their Degree First”!

It is clear that doing an education verification before making any new hire is in a company’s best interests. But it is equally as important for anyone looking for a job to realize that any resume lie can, and often will, come back to haunt them.

Those lies can not only keep you from getting hired in the first place, but when discovered, can lead to getting fired and ruining your reputation.

Anyone looking for a job needs to be aware that Background Checks are the norm, not the exception.

“Be assured, employers are checking. Verifying the information on your resume is common practice and part of most company’s hiring processes. Investigating your education, past employments, and skills top the list. 

It is time to take note ~when your resume lies are uncovered during the hiring process, you lose.  

And, if discovered later, you could face not only the embarrassment of getting fired, but also the possibility of public humiliation”.

When it comes to Resume Lies that will keep you from getting hired or can result in you being fired, “lying about your degree or skills tops the list”. 

Employers fear hiring someone who is unable or unsafe to do the job. That is why it is important that at least the basic skills and training you list are truthful.

Lying on your resume is seen as a mark against your honesty. 

Employers want to hire someone they can trust. If their first impression of you is one of deception, then your chances of getting hired are slim

Discover more about the dangers of lying on your resume in “Employers Share ~ Lie on your Resume and You Lose!".

So, whether you are an employer looking to make a new hire or an applicant hoping to land the perfect new job, checking an applicant’s qualifications first should always be part of the process. Preparing for this important step long beforehand is the key.

Our Top Articles of 2022

Once again it is the time when we share our most popular articles from the past year! 

We love knowing which posts resonated with you, our readers, and which just didn’t catch on.

As in years past, our top blog posts centered around Your Job Search and the Employment Background Check, for both those looking for a job and those hiring!

Let’s get started…

Our first popular post centered on your resume and what information will help or hurt your job search.

The question is this…Will unpaid work experience cause a problem in the employer verification part of your background check?

"Unpaid, volunteer, or intern type positions are great additions to any resume ~ especially when they yielded skills or experience that can translate to your career! Including them will not cause any issues when it comes to the employment background check unless you try to pass them off as Paid Positions. That would send off a bright red flag! However, including them as unpaid references will help you as long as when contacted, they have something nice to say. That is why I recommend that you contact any reference long before you list them on your resume. Give them a “heads up” that they may be contacted and ask them if they are willing to give you a good reference. Even finding out in advance what information past employers will give to potential employers or screening companies is in your best interest. This way you will be prepared as to what an employment background check will find!”.

Instead of feeling angst when you apply for any job, your best bet is to be prepared. And it all starts with your resume!

Making sure your resume is completely truthful is the best start. The key is to make sure all your information is clear and accurate, and following these 6 tips will help!

  1. Make sure your resume is “clean”
  2. Make sure you never list a degree you haven’t earned
  3. Make sure all past employments are accurate
  4. Make sure you know what your past employers will say about you
  5. Make sure you can mitigate any employment “gaps”
  6. Make sure you have done a background check on yourself first

Check out more tips on how you can optimize your resume to help you get the job here!

Our next top article explored what past employers can really say about you during the background check.

Do you really know what a former employer will say about you?

"Employers can choose to reveal anything about you, your work performance, and even reason for leaving as long as it is the truth! However, that doesn’t mean that they will! 

Due to fear of litigation, many employers choose to only verify a former employee’s dates and title of employment. Some will also share whether that person is eligible for rehire. But what they will share is all dependent upon company policy and is not necessarily consistent company to company. 

However, a good background check professional will check and develop references to “fill in the gaps”. That means they will question not only the references listed by an applicant, but also ask those references for another source they could contact who has knowledge about the applicant’s work history and job performance. 

The best thing any job applicant can do is to know beforehand what a former employer will say about them and choose their references wisely. 

And both of these can be accomplished by doing a background check on themselves long before they ever apply for a job”.

So, what can you do to give yourself a heads up on what past employers will share?

Do a little research! Find out the laws in your state and locality governing employer background check guidelines, along with any state and locality where you may have worked!

But despite “best practices” and legal regulations, can you really be 100% sure that you know what a former employer will say about you? That is why your best course of action is to take the time to do a Background Check on yourself first!

Check out the entire article here to learn more about the steps you can take to not only know in advance what a former employer will reveal about you but to also choose the best references in the first place!

In “Can You Edit Your Background Check”, we delved into the question of whether there is any way to change what is found on your employment background check report.

Is it possible to “edit” or change your background check report?

“If you mean can you question or dispute any of the findings contained in a background check, then the answer is Yes. It doesn’t matter whether the investigating company is HireRight or another screening service, you have the right to dispute the findings contained in that check.

However, you cannot simply “edit” that report yourself. If you find that your background check report contains errors, you need to immediately inform the employer that the report has errors. In fact, it is your right to not only dispute the findings but have the chance prove the findings are false or provide information to mitigate them.

So, while you cannot simply “edit” a background check, you have every right to refute the findings and have the chance to prove they are in error”

Find out what you can do before you even apply for a job to make sure your background check will help you get hired, not hurt you by checking out the entire article!

Our next popular post centered on how your social media posts can impact your Job Search.

“Do you post on Social Media? Could what you post be considered “controversial”? Then you need to read this…

What you post online can effect you, your job, and even your family.

That is why you need to understand the potential ramifications of what you post online and learn what you can do to mitigate your exposure.

First you should recognize that nothing you share on Social Media is ever really private!

It is also important that you realize that what you post can impact your Job Search, future promotions, and even your educational goals.

Learn more about how your Social Media posts can impact your Job Search here!

Our final top article of the past year focused on Hiring in a Small Business and the importance of using employment background checks to protect you, your company, and your bottom line!

“It is not easy to find the right employee, especially for a Small Business!

Hiring someone with the right skills, experience, and “fit” is, of course, essential. They need to not only be able to do the job, but to do it well.

But finding that talented candidate is not enough. They also need to be a safe and reliable hire. One that will not jeopardize the safety of your company’s existing employees, your customers, or your assets. 

And the key to accomplishing this goal is by doing a sound Employment Background Check!

When you screen your potential new hires, you are not only making a cost-effective and sound business decision, you are protecting your business reputation. And here are 4 reasons why......

  1. Small Businesses have limited budget for hiring and training
  2. The more “intimate setting” of a Small Business requires safer hires
  3. Background Checks help Small Businesses avoid litigation
  4. Small Businesses rely heavily on their reputation

Discover more about how Employment Background checks will help your business hire safely and effectively and how to get the quality checks you need here!”
