What is a Background Check?
- Background checks range from basic, credit checks to full-blown character profiles.
- Background checks reveal an individual's financial habits and details of any criminal records or possible aliases.
- Background checks are one way of keeping undesirable characters out of the workplace and ultimately, avoiding lawsuits and unnecessary expense.
- Background checks can be the only way of establishing the integrity of an individual.
- Background checks verify details submitted by a job applicant. The applicant fills out an online application form and the information is then, emailed to an International Research company. The company verify the details supplied, before returning an encrypted file containing the results of the background check.
What do Background Checks Verify?

The most common discrepancies, submitted on resumes are misquoted qualifications, work history and earnings.
