Per UEID...Background checks are considered "control"....
And the gal asked...How do do a criminal background check on a company???? If the compaby broke the law chances are the license has been pulled...That was UEID's response to this issue....
That is their opinion. Otherwise, I work for The Department of Homeland Security! I've been vetted twice by them, as well as criminal background checks by 2 very large general contractors that had "government" contracts, long before this line of work.
I'll clarify my statement; Background checks, by themselves, do not an employee make, in any way shape or form.
BTW, background checks are completed on a company by checking the owner, partners or controlling officers, as a whole. If one fails the check, the company fails.
Also, I have never paid for a background check that was required! If its their policy, they can and will pay for it, or I'm not their man.
