Mortgage & Real Estate - Independent Verifications - Employment Screening

Thoroughly understanding an employee's background provides not only possible indications of future performance, but also an added layer of protection for the employer. Current judicial precedent sides against employers facing negligent hiring suits due to an employee’s action against a third party. A 2001 report by Public Personnel Management found employers have lost over 79% of negligent hiring cases. Additionally, many recent industry studies place the average settlement for a negligent hiring lawsuit at nearly $1 million.

Employment applications frequently contain false or distorted data, which can result in hiring the wrong person for the job – or more damaging, a potential security risk. Industry statistics overwhelmingly support this potential threat:

  • It’s estimated $994 billion was lost by U.S. Corporations due to occupational fraud in 2008.

  • Thirty percent of small business failure is attributed to employee theft

  • Statistics on applicants embellishing their work histories, “…estimates range from 40% to 70%.”
