Recommended Background Checks for Finance Jobs:


Credit Report Check

Credit Report Checks are obtained from a leading credit reporting agency. The report may contain information including the types of credit held by the applicant, total amount of indebtedness, current and previous delinquent accounts, accounts which have been charged off, liens, judgments, and collection accounts.

GSA Excluded Parties Search

The GSA Excluded Parties Search is provided as a public service by General Services Administration (GSA) for the purpose of efficiently and conveniently disseminating information on parties that are excluded from receiving Federal contracts, certain subcontracts, and certain Federal financial and nonfinancial assistance and benefits, pursuant to the provisions of 31 U.S.C. 6101, note, E.O. 12549, E.O. 12689, 48 CFR 9.404, and each agency’s codification of the Common Rule for Non-procurement suspension and debarment.

National Terrorist Watch Search

The National Terrorist Watch Search provides information from federal databases maintained by the US Department of the Treasury Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC). A prohibited party is described as “designated nationals, terrorists, narcotics traffickers, blocked persons and parties subject to various economic sanctioned programs who are forbidden from conducting business in the United States.” OFAC administers and enforces economic and trade sanctions based on US foreign policy and national security goals against targeted foreign countries and regimes, terrorists, international narcotics traffickers, those engaged in activities related to the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, and other threats to the national security, foreign policy or economy of the United States. OFAC acts under Presidential national emergency powers, as well as authority granted by specific legislation, to impose controls on transactions and freeze assets under US jurisdiction. Many of the sanctions are based on United Nations and other international mandates, are multilateral in scope, and involve close cooperation with allied governments.

FDIC Enforcement Search

The FDIC Enforcement Search provides information about FDIC enforcement actions against entities for violations of laws, rules, or regulations, unsafe or unsound banking practices, breaches of fiduciary duty, and violations of final orders, conditions imposed in writing or written agreements. The FDIC has the statutory authority to terminate the deposit insurance of any insured depository institution for violation of a law, rule, regulation, condition imposed in writing, or written agreement, or for being in an unsafe or unsound condition or engaging in unsafe or unsound banking practices.

Federal Bankruptcy Search

A Federal Bankruptcy Search provides information concerning national federal bankruptcy filings. This includes bankruptcy type (7, 11, or 13), any listed debtors, amount of liability, and date of filing.

County Civil Records Search

A County Civil Records Search involves review of county civil court records for civil litigation including lien and judgment filings. The searches are performed in the applicant’s county of residence and identify the plaintiffs, defendants, and liability amount.

County Criminal Record Search

A County Criminal Records Search provides felony and misdemeanor convictions from the last 7 years per FCRA regulations. When legally reportable, REXUS provides a minimum 10-year search. We work with researchers to access criminal records directly from the courts on both a county and state level. This methodology provides the most accurate and thorough criminal record review as opposed to the standard results provided through a compiled criminal database. In addition, when legally reportable, our report includes charges that were dismissed, not prosecuted, entered into pre-trial diversion programs or had suspended sentences.

Nationwide Criminal Database Records Search

A Nationwide Criminal Database Records Search examines records covering all 50 States including the District of Columbia. Included are criminal records from statewide repositories and archives, department of corrections, local county information, traffic violations, administration of courts records, and the nationwide registered sex offender database. The results are cross-referenced for acccuracy with records found in a County Criminal Records Search and/or State Repository Criminal Search.

Professional License Verification

Professional License Verification confirms an applicant possesses a professional license, and that the license is in good standing. The types of licenses include state-issued professional licenses or certification for medical professionals, lawyers, pharmacists, accountants, and many others. The verification includes any restrictions on the license, the date of issuance and expiration date.

Education Verification

Education Verification provides information regarding high school diploma, general education diploma (GED), college enrollment, or college degrees from schools or institutions. The type of degrees or certificates, graduation dates, attendance dates, and graduating honors are also reported.

Employment Verification

With an Employment Verification, contact is made with supervisors provided by the applicant to determine an overview of job performance, interpersonal relations, and areas of expertise. Contact is also made with the Human Resources department to verify dates of employment, job title, salary, and eligibility for rehire.
