- Employment Screening Services
Social Security Number Search (SSN)
When hiring an employee or screening a volunteer, an important step is to begin to verify the individual’s identity by conducting a Social Security Number (SSN) Search. This search provides information on an applicant’s name, past addresses and movement patterns based on the SSN provided to us (NOTE: information from the Social Security Administration is not used in this report). In addition to returning information on a SSN, this search provides a report with the following: Full name and/or alternate names used by an applicant, dates at listed addresses, age/date of birth, and available phone information. This is an investigative starting point that provides a more complete background search when combined with additional screening services. Turnaround Time: Instant
County Criminal Search
Based on the candidate’s address history, the County Criminal Search is considered the most accurate and comprehensive criminal background search. VeriCorp utilizes a team of researchers to access criminal records directly from the courthouses in the county(ies) you are requesting. We utilize public access terminals or “hand pulled” criminal searches to directly examine county criminal felony and/or misdemeanor court records, rather than using an aggregated criminal database. Multiple counties may be selected per applicant and the counties may be found by county name, city, zip code or use our convenient Auto Search button. It is recommended searching the county of residence and/or prior counties of residence, employment or education. Turnaround Time: Average 1-3 days

The Please Tell Us… Employee HOTLINE
Having a confidential reporting hotline is becoming a necessity for any organization. Employee relations and regulatory issues require companies to look for better employee reporting methods. When employees encounter sexual harassment, discrimination or other workplace dilemmas, they often feel that they cannot confide in normal internal channels without fear of retaliation. Instead, they frequently turn to outsiders for intervention which can lead to costly lawsuits or government investigations–even negative publicity. The Please Tell Us…Employee HOTLINE can support and enhance your employee relations program by providing an impartial dispute resolution practitioner to provide independent, confidential and informed assistance.
