Submitting to a background check does NOT mean that you are an employee.

Seems to be standard issue whenever the possibility of government $$ is involved.

Yeah, I already paid two companies for checks trying to get more work. None have given me any after I completed it all.

That"s the exact scenario I see happening , Company I've never heard of spends all their time collecting 40.00 from unsuspecting companies only to never give them any work nice hustle...

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.

Here is how I was told:

Background checks by themselves are ok and legal BUT cannot be shared with anyother party.

Example: Company A demands that you have a background check ran to determine your criminal record or your financial condition, Company A CANNOT give this to Company B/C/D/E or anyone else.

You see these emails stating "we have a client that requires a background check be ran to determine if you meet eligibility to receive work from said client". This is Totally Bogus! YOUR information CANNOT be given to this Special Client without express written permission from YOU. The Company that is working for this Special Client needs their Background ran and not yours.

If I was a scam artist from Nigeria I would be on Craigslist looking for YOU suckers willing to pay me to steal your ID. Then I would sell YOUR information to some of these Identity thieves and make $500.00 per record (at least that is the amount I saw on a local TV station they pay for "good ID's" ).

I would make more $$ from the scam than from any actual work. Don't get any ideas guys/gals :whistling2:

You are referring to direct government work...and yes that has always been the norm...However, you like myself and many others have been completing services for several of these companies for many years...now they want a BC on you and your employees???? Sorry but what do they say about dressing the duck?????
I'm not buying that all these companies need background checks on you or your employees for their "client"...or the client is even asking for it...I see this as yet another avenue to separate you and your money....One common denominator I see...which is good...is that no one has an issue...unless asked to pay for the check by their personal....on that note everyone is saying no...and I agree it is on them if they want this information......

LPS came in to the office last week and among other things that were discussed, they are going to be doing background checks within the next few months, this is required by the government. And in my opinion, they should of been doing this all along! This industry wouldn't be so saturated with crooks!

Dont forget the government bailed these banks out, so they are very interested in who is working on these assets.

Update, they called me twice more and emailed me I called them back and left a voicemail stating that their prices were on the low side and that I was not comfortable paying for a bakround check without verifiable proof they actually had work in my area and requested they send me a copy of a past or present work order in my County to verify they had work here, well up to this very moment I have not heard a word back from them, I'm quessing it's just a hustle ,get the 40.00 for the BC and never be heard from again...

They should already have your own personal information on file from your original app. What information should you require from them in order to satisfy any concerns?

I believe that these small steps however annoying they are will help get rid of some of the low ballers and crooks.
