Criminal Background Checks for Employment

Criminal Background Investigation with Optional Automated Adverse 
Action Notification and/or Information Analytics and Grading

Our criminal background screening solutions give you the information and peace of mind to protect your organization from financial and security risks associated with an unsafe working environment.  Through criminal record sources, we are able to locate County, State, and Federal criminal records.  When a record is located, eVerifile provides you detailed information including level of the record, how the record was verified (name, DOB, SSN), case number, offense, and disposition and disposition date (where applicable). 

  • County Criminal History:  County criminal searches are one of the most accurate sources for uncovering criminal records. If a felony or misdemeanor charge exists for an individual, a county criminal search is where the record is most likely to be filed. Research is conducted through a network of field agents, over 1,200 courthouse jurisdictions in the more than 3,300 county courthouses across the United States. County criminal searches go back a minimum of 7 years based on where the applicant has lived or worked (using names provided by the applicant or developed from other sources), and include felonies and misdemeanors where applicable.
     
  • State Criminal History:  A statewide search will yield information for all counties in a given state. While all counties report to the state level, there can be instances where a conviction has been recorded at the county level, but not elevated to the state level. In those instances, you have the option to conduct a county or multi-county criminal history search.
     
  • Federal Criminal History:  A federal criminal search is conducted by searching US District Court Indices in much the same way as a county criminal history. Crimes reported in a federal criminal record include only those offenses that are federally prosecuted (violations of federal law as enforced by the FBI, DEA, ATF) as opposed to local and state law. Federal violations will generally not appear in either a county or statewide criminal check, and offenses can include kidnapping, drug trafficking, interstate transportation of stolen goods, bank robbery, and embezzlement.
