Hiring the right employee involves more than matching the best skills for the job. You need to think about protecting your company as well.
Not all employee screening is the same. PayData has partnered with National Crime Search (NCS) — a solid, experienced company with a proven history of identifying information omitted by prospective employees, reducing the employer’s liability.
Negligent hiring and retention lawsuits are preventable. Negligent hiring and retention liability normally refers to an employer’s obligation not to hire an applicant, or retain an employee, that they knew or should have known was likely to undertake conduct against other individuals, or otherwise subject employees or customers to actions which can create legal liability. Employers can be held liable for willful misconduct by their employees.
Many employers have been found responsible for their employees’ actions, even when the employee was not working for them at the time of the crime. These lawsuits have cost companies millions of dollars in damages, forcing some companies into bankruptcy.
The benefits of PayData’s background screening service include:
Reduce personnel turnover and training expenses. It costs thousands of dollars to replace an hourly employee, and even more for salaried employees.
Protect against potential liability from negligent hiring or retention lawsuits. Average settlements in negligent hiring lawsuits are now approaching one million dollars.
Criminal backgrounds of employee could threaten your organization. Companies are at risk of bankruptcy due to negligent hiring lawsuits.
Identify higher-quality employees. You’ll avoid spending time and money training someone you should have never even hired.
Safeguard existing employees and customers. You’ll shield your company from the hiring of individuals whose backgrounds present a threat to the company.
Maintain Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) Compliance. Your company has disclosure responsibilities under the FCRA. It is important to use a background screening company that will help keep your company in compliance.
