In today’s society, application fraud is rampant. Estimates of fraudulent content are as high as 50% of all submitted applications and resumes. Employment and tenant screening, including drug testing, is focused on applicant integrity.
Screening Verifies Applicant Integrity
Employment screening (including drug testing) is concerned with applicant integrity. By performing a legally permissible, legitimate background check, an employer can measure the integrity of the applicant by comparing the application, resume and interview responses to the objective facts compiled in the screening report.
Past Performance Predicts Future Results
A common human resources idiom is that, “past performance predicts future performance.” What the employee has done in the past is a good indicator (although admittedly not foolproof) of how the individual will operate in the future. Background screening attempts to reveal how an applicant has acted with respect to the law, schools, employers and the court system.
Screening Reduces Negligent Hiring Risk
Employers are legally liable for the actions of their employees under the so-called “negligent hiring” doctrine. However, that risk is mitigated when the employer has made a good faith effort to obtain information that is “reasonably available,” and when they have acted appropriately in light of that information. Background screening and drug testing provide the needed information to mitigate potential exposure to negligent hiring lawsuits.
A number of U.S. states have passed, or are considering passing, laws regulating credit reports used by employers for employment purposes. California, Colorado, Connecticut, Hawaii, Illinois, Maryland, Nevada, Oregon, Vermont, and Washington, have restricted the use of credit histories of applicants and employees. Alliance 2020 will continue to monitor state regulations and post updates.
