We understand that the human resources of your company represent the greatest value to your organization and at the same time can represent the greatest risk and potential liability to your company. Protecting company assets as well as ensuring a safe and productive work environment requires that all incoming employees be thoroughly screened by knowledgeable professionals.
First Line Data provides the knowledge and expertise needed to perform cost-effective and thorough screening of all hiring candidates. Through our secure FCRA compliant platform companies can gain access vital information. We utilize a vast network of sources including governmental agencies, data repositories, public records, watch-lists, and direct-check verifications made by our experience research professionals.
Our services for the human resources industry include:
Patriot Act Super Search
A powerful compliance tool with OFAC and much more; over 24 domestic and international watch lists, sanctions lists, most-wanted lists.
Search of the most current General Services Agency’s Excluded Parties Listing System database to determine if your business or individual applicants are “excluded”.
Federal Criminal Research
Violations of Federal Law will not be found in county records. The location of the information depends upon jurisdiction and where the charge was filed. The federal court system is organized by districts, and is searched similarly to county records. Unlike county courts, federal records can be searched statewide or nationwide.
Statewide Criminal Database Checks
Some states maintain repositories of criminal information submitted by the county courts and local law enforcement authorities in that state.
Professional License and Certification Verification
First Line Data’s research specialists verify license credentials at the primary source, validating status, standing, and dates if available.
Researchers contact current and previous employers to verify information provided by the applicant. Information beyond dates and title are queried, including termination type, reason for termination, wage at termination, and eligibility for rehire. This information goes into the work history database.
First Line Data calls to confirm both degrees/certificates and dates of attendance supplied by the applicant. Some institutions may either require a written release, or utilize pay-for-use services.
Social Security Number Verification
Applicant’s supplied SSN is validated, directly through the Social Security Administration (SSA), bypassing all third parties. Results are available within minutes.
Previous Address Locator
This verification utilizes major credit source ‘header’ information to identify the individual, previous addresses, maiden names, and aliases, providing a valuable tool in determining criminal record search parameters.
