Employee screening service necessitates quite a bit of digging, and all information acquired is personal and has to be kept confidential. Due to the sensitive nature of work that we do, the Government has laid down a number of laws and acts which ensure that all the data is collected through the appropriate channels and in a legally and ethically appropriate manner.

In existence since 1999, Accurate Background Check prides itself on compliance of proper legal procedures and policies while performing screening services for your organization. These practices are incorporated within our processes, and our staff ensures that no breach of the law is made. Through compliance, the information collected on candidates for screening purposes is kept confidential, and vulnerability to intellectual theft is mitigated.

Operating in full compliance with governing standards in the industry, here are some of the major acts that Accurate Background Checks complies with:

Department of Transportation Drug Testing

Random drug testing has become a norm in the industry today, with organizations often opting for this service. Over time, numerous foul ups have been observed in the process due to sloppy proceedings. The Department of Transportation has thus laid down official rules and regulations on drug testing, which include the methods used when conducting drug tests, and the criteria used to determine the treatment and return of candidates in case of drug testing violations. These regulations are revised on an annual basis, and Accurate Background Checks continues to stay on top of any and all regulations that require further compliance.

Federal Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA)

Several of our services are linked directly with investigating credit scores and credit information of candidates and then reporting it to our clients. When doing so, the Federal Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) comes into action, since the act is designed to ensure accuracy, fairness, and privacy of all credit information specific to an individual, which is reported. The Act was initially designed for credit bureaus which need to gather detailed credit information on individuals. With the recent popularity of employee screening information, the Act now also encompasses any activities that we do which involve credit information reporting.

Accurate Background Checks runs all such operations in full compliance with the regulations and laws that are laid down in the Federal Fair Credit Reporting Act. All necessary forms, applications, and letters are available at ABC for full compliance with the act.

Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act

The Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act is well known for the removal of several barriers for financial institutions, but that is not all the Act entails. In terms of compliance, the Act includes rules concerning financial privacy. These regulations govern the collection and disclosure of customers’ financial information. Since we need to collect such information when conducting our extensive background checks on candidates, the rules apply on us too. Accurate Background Checks makes certain that all activities for acquisition of a candidates’ financial information and conducted in compliance with the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act. All procedures in this regard are designed to avoid any breach of the law.
