A complete and comprehensive criminal background check consists of checking an applicant’s criminal history, not only in the state in which they currently reside, but also in all other states of residence. Failure to check an applicant’s full criminal background can leave your company susceptible to the dangers of an incomplete background check. Barnes County, North Dakota learned the dangers of not performing a full criminal background check when they hired an employee wanted for murder and failed to run a criminal record in his previous state of residence. A proper employment screening process would have prevented this mistake. 

Unfortunately there are a lot of myths about the background check industry and much of this misinformation comes from companies offering free background checks. These companies do not have access to all of the nationwide criminal records, and generally will only provide a general statement about the possibility of a criminal record, which they will then try to charge a premium to release the information.
