Pre-Employment Background Checks

Pre-Employment Background Checks

Pre-Employment Background Checks When you are hiring employees, you might need more information on a candidate to make an informed decision. The following list includes the types of information that employers often consult as part of a pre-employment check, and the laws governing access and use for making hiring decisions. Credit Reports Under the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), businesses must obtain an employee's written consent before seeking an employee's credit report. If you decide not to hire or promote someone based on information in the credit report, you must provide a copy of the report and let the applicant know of his or her right to challenge the report under the FCRA. Visit the FTC’s Bureau of Consumer Protection’s website for more information. Criminal Records To what extent a private employer may consider an applicant's criminal history in making hiring decisions varies from state to state. Because of this variation, you should consult with a lawyer or do further legal research on the laws of your state before exploring whether or not an applicant has a criminal past. Bankruptcies Bankruptcies are a matter of public record and may appear on an individual's credit report. The Federal Bankruptcy Act prohibits employers from discriminating against applicants because they have filed for bankruptcy.

Infidelity / Adultery

Infidelity / Adultery

Is Your Husband or Wife Cheating? It's possible. And according to a new study out of Texas A&M University, it's males' stronger sexual impulses -- and not their lack of self-control -- that could be to blame. "Men have plenty of self-control -- just as much as women," Eastwick said. "However, if men fail to use self-control, their sexual impulses can be quite strong. This is often the situation when cheating occurs." Huffington Post, 7/2/2013. However, “It seems that women are starting to cheat almost as much as men. According to a report by Bloomberg Businessweek published this week, the most recent data from the National Opinion Research Center's General Social Survey show that women have had more affairs in the past two decades then in previous years. The percentage of men who admitted to infidelity "held constant at 21 percent," while "the percentage of wives having affairs rose almost 40 percent .to 14.7 percent in 2010." “Men are still more likely to cheat than women,” Yanyi Djamba, director of the Auburn Montgomery Center For Demographic Research, told Bloomberg. “But the gender gap is closing.” Huffington Post, 9/23/2013. What are the Common Signs of a Cheating Spouse ? Changes in intimacy: A distinct increase or decrease in intimacy and affection levels or sexual preferences may hint indicate infidelity. Suspicious phone habits: A spouse that hides his or her phone or is secretive about their call logs and text messages may be cheating. Changes in appearance: A marked change in style of dress, intimate wear, and/or personal hygiene can be a clue. Suspicious internet use: Much like phone habits, a cheating spouse may be overly secretive when it comes to their browser history and general internet and computer habits. Changes in work routine: It may seem like a cliche but a husband or wife that suddenly needs to “work late” or “go to a conference” frequently is a sign of infidelity. Changes in bathing habits: A spouse that showers right when they get home, switches cologne or perfume or changes their grooming habits can be a sign of cheating. What Does An Infidelity Investigation Entail? Investigations will vary based upon your needs. However, many times an investigation to catch a catching spouse may include: Surveillance - We can watch your spouse through advanced surveillance methods to make sure that you have the evidence you need. Rather than relying on hearsay or your own suspicions, an investigator can help you know. Evidence gathering - Seeing a cheating spouse caught on tape is not pleasant, but if we uncovers proof of infidelity, such evidence can help you land a better divorce settlement or can give you the tool you need to confront your mate. If we finds solid proof that your spouse is faithful, the peace of mind can help ensure that your relationship survives any suspicion. Professional techniques - When you hire us, we will use professional investigative techniques to find out whether your spouse is unfaithful or not. You will have access to technology and equipment that the average person would not. What Should I Expect from an Infidelity Investigation? Investigations into cheating spouses can range from days to several months. Regardless of length of time, when you see us about a cheating spouse, you will be treated with discretion and respect. We will listen to your suspicions, take them seriously, and will ask you how you want the investigation to be shaped. You will remain in control of how the investigation proceeds and your professional investigator will investigate your spouse on your terms until you are completely satisfied. You will be able to get regular updates about the status of the investigation and only you will get to decide what to do with the information that is gathered. Some people seek help as soon as they feel some suspicion that their spouse is cheating. Knowing for certain is important to them before they confront their partner. Others know their spouse in unfaithful but want solid evidence. If worries about your spouse are affecting your relationship or causing you stress, call us today at (201) 674-9609 or email us info@aratedpi.com. For private investigation to work, you need to be willing to commit to an investigation. This means that you must be willing to speak openly with the investigator about your situation and you must be willing to find out the truth. As long as you are willing to do these things, you can take control of your situation.

Lie Detection & Polygraph Examinations

Lie Detection & Polygraph Examinations

What is Polygraph Lie-Detection? Polygraph is a generic name for an instrument which is commonly known as a 'Lie Detector'. Contrary to popular belief, it does not record directly whether a person is lying or telling the truth; it records changes which take place in the body during stress. A Polygraph Instrument is, in effect, a sophisticated piece of medical equipment which measures autonomic nervous reactions which take place in the human body when an 'important', or incriminating, lie is told. These responses are usually not visible to the eye. The physiological reactions which occur when a person tells a lie are measured by recording respiration, cardio-vascular reaction and skin moisture changes. What does Polygraph Lie-Detection entail? When Polygraph examinations are to be carried out, we give a full briefing on the circumstances relating to the incident or situation. Subject will be interviewed in depth before a series of questions is discussed and agreed - trick questions are never inserted. Tests are confined to relevant questions for each situation and case. Subject is then connected to the apparatus by means of an arm-band, two finger sensors and two convoluted rubber tubes which encircle the chest and abdomen. A Polygraph test takes 2 hours - usually longer - even though Subject may only be connected to the apparatus for a few minutes whilst the agreed questions are asked and answered. All Polygraph examinations are confidential. Call A Rated Investigations today to get the help you deserve from professionals with extensive experience in the industry.

Criminal Background Checks & Screening

Criminal Background Checks & Screening

What is Criminal Background Checks & Screening? Criminal Background Checks & Screening helps eliminate uncertainties in the hiring process, provides due diligence and helps pick the best suited applicant for the job. Running a social security search and criminal background check in the hiring process helps prevent negligent hiring lawsuits and promotes an atmosphere of safety for all employees. In this day and age, an employer has an obligation to maintain a safe working environment for all its employees, and performing certain background checks before hiring helps achieve this. Employers who actively screen their applicants before hiring also face less liability in the event of a workplace accident or crime. Pre-employment screening is a primary way of eliminating or minimizing negligent hiring liability. Negligent hiring lawsuits have found many employers responsible for their employees’ actions even when an employee is not working at the time of the crime. Negligent hiring lawsuits have cost companies millions of dollars, and have even pushed some companies into bankruptcy. If protecting your company and your employees are important, implementing a solid, consistent employment screening solution is the only way to go. What are covered in Criminal Background Checks & Screening? Some of the areas covered by our background checks are the following: Bankruptcies, Judgments and Liens Phone Number Information (Cellphone & Land line ) Property Searches Residential Locates Social Security Number Verification Call A Rated Investigations today to get the help you deserve from professionals with extensive experience in the industry.
