Tehama County, California Criminal Records
There are many things a company or human resources department can uncover when using public records to perform a background check on a potential job candidate. For example, an individual applying for a job might have criminal records that lists a past conviction for a DUI, or records that describe that person being the defendant in a lawsuit. In addition, a registered sex offender will also have criminal records on file with the county or state sex offender registry. In any case, by far the most important information to be gleaned from a background check is whether or not the job candidates has any sort of criminal history, especially being registered as a sex offender. Companies can face serious consequences if they inadvertently offer employment to a felon, and that person goes on to commit a criminal transgression on company property. This is why most companies will only do fingerprints background checks, as they are proven to be more accurate and trustworthy than a standard name check.
