  Hiring the Wrong Candidate -Click Here for More Articles-   

The negative results of hiring an employee without proper screening are not evident until the employee commits an act against the company or a fellow employee. In the case or workplace violence, one act may result in costly litigation (legal fees and jury awards) when the injured employee sues the employer.  This aggressor may even go as far as to bring litigation against the company for discrimination or wrongful termination.

In the case of fraud or theft, the total costs incurred are not only from the actual theft but also in the immeasurable lost productivity and employee morale. Other costs associated include the many man-hours lost in investigating the loss. The costs of investigation become much more involved because most theft and fraud is not noticed until much later. Some companies must go as far as hiring additional personnel, outside auditors or security companies. Even after the theft has been investigated and the perpetrator has been identified, this predator may still bring wrongful termination litigation against employer. In today’s legal climate, the employer has the burden of proof to justify the termination. 

The purpose of pre-employment background screening is to identify a potential employees’ predisposition to violence or theft.

With violence, it is common knowledge in the legal community that a history of violence is a precursor of future violence. It is rare that an adult with no history of violence wakes up one day to become violent, especially in the workplace. The prime reason for screening is to have the ability demonstrate to authorities that the company has shown due diligence to protect other employees and the public from potential predators.

With theft or fraud, criminal background checks are very powerful tools but when you add a credit check, the picture becomes clearer. A credit check reveals candidates whose financial position may motivate them to steal.  Also, previous employer and resume verification can certainly shed some light on the character of a candidate.  Falsifying a resume is a sure giveaway of a problematic hire.

Today’s business environment is volatile and very competitive. Realizing your profits come from not only selling your products and services but also from minimizing your risk of additional costs.  Proper and thorough employee screening is essential to the health of a company; one bad hire can certainly damage profits.
