Call of the Day: When to Complete a Background Check

When should we do our background checks – before an offer is made?  After the offer is made and before employment starts?  Of after the employee begins working?

It is strongly suggested that you do the background check after the offer is made but before they start employment.  A big reason is the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) , which requires you to notify an applicant of the reason you are withdrawing a job offer if you have sued a vendor to conduct the background check.  If you conducted a background check before extending an offer, you run a legal because applicants not hired due to poor interview skills might believe it is something on their background checked.
