Verifying Licenses with Employee Background Checks

If you are in the midst of hiring a new employee, you might be sitting at your desk right now, a dozen or so resumes spread out in front of you, each candidate looking as qualified and appealing as the next. But say you work in a field where a license is required in order to carry out certain tasks or to operate certain machinery. Whether or not a candidate has the requisite license could mean the difference between being a viable applicant and being a rejected one. All of the resumes say that the respective candidates are licensed—but can you know for sure?

Employee background checks can yield important, sometime surprising, results. Learning about what kind of background your candidates have in the field you are hiring for is an essential part of learning whether or not they will be able to perform their assigned work, naturally. But just as important is learning whether or not an applicant is legally qualified to do that work. A license in a given area indicates that a job candidate has passed some sort of official evaluation or testing, giving them the legal credentials necessary to work in their field.

If an applicant believes that having a license is the only way they will be offered a job but knows they do not have it, they might falsify their credentials and indicate on their resume that they have a license. Whether or not they intend to get one, hiring an applicant without a proper license puts your facility, employees, and company as a whole at risk—physically, legally, and financially.
