The cornerstone of a comprehensive and compliant criminal record research program is a thorough search in every jurisdiction where the candidate has lived. However, most applications only ask for a current address, and it is not known how long the candidate lived there. Other concerns for an employer include whether the candidate provided the correct name and date of birth on the application, since this information is raw, unconfirmed data during the application process. A criminal search conducted with inaccurate identifiers may result in the failure to locate a criminal record belonging to the candidate.
To resolve this problem, TABB INC’s proprietary “Identity and Address Trace” accesses hundreds of databases in the U.S. and instantly confirms the candidate’s SSN and date of birth. This database also identifies all addresses where the candidate has lived in the past and present. This search will also develop other names used by the candidate, and confirm the date of birth.
Our research develops and confirms information that may not have been included on the employment application, either by mistake or omission. When utilized in conjunction with our primary source criminal research in all jurisdictions where the candidate has resided, the employer has a program in place that mitigates risk and reduces the possibility of a failed hire.
