Verification Background Checks

Includes Education, Employment, Credential and Professional Reference verification
Employment history verification is an essential step in the hiring process. LaborChex will uncover job titles and duration, salary history, performance evaluations, and the reason for leaving/termination. Our investigators contact educational institutions to confirm graduation, degrees, certificates earned, classes taken, and more. These reports show a comparison of the details provided by the applicant and the information revealed in the investigation. Once we receive the order and signed release form, one of our professionals will contact previous employers and higher education officials. This process provides our clients with valuable insights to the applicant’s work and school records.

We Offer These Verification Background Checks:

Employment Verification

Identify resume mistakes or attempts to inflate qualifications and experience with our streamlined employment verification solutions.

Education Verification

Laborchex contacts an educational institution to verify an individual’s provided education credentials. The education verification process compares the information provided about the subject’s school, college, or university and verifies those items with the education institution. We verify dates of attendance, degree(s) or credential(s) received, and if any honors were attached to the degree. *** Institutional fees may apply

Reference Verification

Laborchex can contact both business and personal references to obtain a more subjective look than provided from an employment verification. We confirm personal qualities such as dependability, integrity, character, and work ethic, clarify gaps in employment history, and determine if the person is a good fit for the company’s culture.

Professional License & Certification Verifications

Medical and Financial industries rely heavily on the validation of candidates’ professional licenses. Capable of verifying thousands of licenses and certifications, our team of experts confirms your candidates’ claims and determines if those licenses are current and in good standing.
