Employee Credit Check

Pre employment credit checks are often conducted by employers in order to:

  • Assess Candidate Responsibility – A candidate who exercises good judgment with their personal finances and meets financial obligations on-time may be more likely to execute their job duties in a similar manner.
  • Guard Against Misuse of Funds – Applicants in difficult financial straits may present a greater risk for misuse of funds and be poorly suited for positions involving financial responsibility. 

Conducting Employee Credit Checks:

You’ll receive a full consumer credit report, access comprehensive financial information and make the most appropriate hiring decision possible.

Special Considerations:

Employers must obtain the applicant’s written consent before performing any type of credit check. Employers may not use an individual’s credit history as a factor in their hiring decisions unless the information is relevant to the position.
