Civil Court Searches

Often, when employers conduct a background check their main intent is to find any evidence of a criminal record. However, an applicant may have had issues with the courts that may not be in the criminal system, but in the civil court. That’s where a civil background check comes into play. 

Civil lawsuits out number their criminal counterparts by nearly 2 million cases. 

Why a civil court background check?

With a civil background check an employer can discover if an applicant has sued former employers or has been sued for reasons that are relevant to employment. A civil background check will also show any bankruptcies. The background check information that is listed in each report includes the date of filing the civil court cases, case type, case number or file record, jurisdiction, and, if available, the identity of parties involved.
