Government And Federal Background Checks
For government employees, high expectations of ethical behavior are part of the job on a daily basis. Government regulators and citizens alike demand that public workers not only meet the basic responsibilities of their jobs — which typically include serving the public — but that they demonstrate integrity, honesty and fairness in everything they do.
Hiring for governmental positions can pose challenges, as candidates must exhibit qualifications that would be expected in any similar private-sector position — as well as a commitment to cooperation, ethics and treating all members of the public respectfully.
What are some of the common types of background checks that government entities typically conduct before extending employment offers? Screenings may include:
- Criminal background checks at the federal, state and county levels
- Social Security number tracking reports and work authorizations
- Motor vehicle records reports
- International background searches
- Sex offender registry searches
- Drug and substance abuse screenings
- Credit records checks
- Verification of education and prior employment
- Professional license and certification verification
- Professional references check
With a law enforcement background check or another type of government employment background check from Global Verification Network, public-sector employers gain access to a range of information that can assist with compliance and candidate decisions.
