Home > CRIMINAL BACKGROUND CHECKS – A CRITICAL ASPECT

Criminal record checks – why a critical aspect of employee screening?

  • To ensure that the employees that are being hired have a clean past and are not involved in any type of criminal activity
  • It reduces the chances of hiring someone with a history of behaving in a threatening or violent manner.
  • To avoid any drastic effect on workplace safety, brand reputation and motivation of existing employees
  • If you are hiring an employee who will interact with vulnerable populations such as children or older adults, completing a detailed criminal records check is vital for safety and for the company’s reputation and thus make it a mandatory requirement for blue-collar workforce

How you should do it?

Select a background screening partner who has adequate knowledge and experience and has got access to criminal records and litigation databases.

In India, criminal background checks are carried out through an all-inclusive litigation search of court records which will involve civil or criminal cases. The data is collected from the information dispersed by the courts. These include:

  1. Criminal Suit – Magistrate Court
  2. Criminal Suit District Court
  3. Criminal Suit State Court
  4. District Civil Courts & Tribunals
  5. District Court
  6. High Courts
  7. Magistrate Court
  8. State Courts
  9. Supreme Court

 

 

What should you do in case the candidate is found guilty?

  • You may ask the candidate to give a valid justification for the stance
  • The management may review the case and then decide the action on the same

Our RECOMMENDATIONS :

  • Court records should be checked extensively for all levels of courts
  • It should be done for current and permanent address both
  • Criminal verification should be done at the police station levels for the current and permanent address both
  • Criminal record check should not be restricted to PAN India check and should be done on Global database taking into consideration the level of seniority and nature of the job being applied for
