Human Service Background Checks

Research Services Provides thorough background checks to companies in the Human Service Industry. Human Service industries are imperative to a thriving and balanced community. Companies in the human service industry provide direct care in therapeutic, vocational, and residential fields. They work directly with children and families. Having access to both children and people with disabilities means they are working with the vulnerable. Working with vulnerable people means there is a need to find responsible, dignified, and educated employees and volunteers to provide guidance.

What Searches Do We Offer That Can Assist in Finding Upstanding Individuals?

  • Criminal Searches – Providing a criminal report allows you to decide if an individual is an appropriate candidate. If you are hiring an employee who will be entering your clients’ homes, you might not want to hire someone with a long and recent history of theft. Our Connecticut system of search accounts for clerical errors, which include typos found in the name and date of birth of an individual. Other consumer reporting agencies do not account for these errors, therefore missing potential records. For our clients based in Connecticut and their Connecticut-based applicants, we provide records as far back as the 80s.
  • Driver History Reports – Certain positions require employees or volunteers to drive clients. You would not want a person with a long history of neglecting driving laws to drive vulnerable people and put them in dangerous or stressful environments.
  • Federal Criminal Searches – The federal search includes crimes such as embezzlement, forgery, kidnapping, and mail fraud, to name a few. If you were looking into someone who wanted to adopt a child or if an applicant would be managing your company and making executive decisions, you would not want them to have a federal record.
  • Sex Offender Registry – If you are hiring an applicant dealing directly with children, you would not want to hire someone who appears on this registry. We search all aliases for this report.
  • National Criminal Index – The National Criminal Index is an excellent pre-screen tool. In our years of experience, we have found records for applicants who vacationed but never lived in a state using this search. This index includes the sex offender registry as well as the OIG search.
  • Education Verifications – Could you imagine the implication of hiring someone to work as a caseworker who did not have a degree in this field? We help by verifying the education on an applicant’s resume. Unfortunately, we have also had to inform some of our clients about applicants who attended diploma mills or other educational institutions that do not hold accreditations.
  • Employment Verifications – A candidate with an impressive resume has applied for a position. We provide employment verifications to ensure the accuracy of their resumes.
