Submitting to a background check does NOT mean that you are an employee.. . .Anyone who submits to a background check is crazy you are not being hired the company you work for is.....simple as that you submit make sure to ask for you benefit package....
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...Yeah, I already paid two companies for checks trying to get more work. None have given me any after I completed it all.

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

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.
Dont forget the government bailed these banks out, so they are very interested in who is working on these assets.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......
Did you ever do any business with this company?, they called me today and said they wanted 40.00 for a backround check?, I don't normally pay someone for the privillege of working for them...:glare:
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!
