Background Checks and Investigations


Background checks such as employment, criminal, credit history or education are a common request made by employers to prospective employees.  Private investigation firms are often asked to perform background checks for these reasons.  However, private investigators can also perform more substantial background investigations, for example:

  • to assist companies to determine if a particular employee should be granted a promotion or prior to making a decision to terminate an employee;
  • prior to entering into a substantive business dealing, a company may wish to undertake due diligence;
  • families may wish to conduct a background check on a prospective caregiver;
  • individuals may require background checks to screen a potential tenant or an investment/business partner.

A private investigator can use many resources and methods to conduct background checks and provide a more comprehensive, evidence and fact-based inquiry.

Both background checks and investigations should be conducted with a thorough understanding of the laws that govern the collection, use and disclosure of personal information.  Privacy laws require that information should only be used for the purposes collected and subject to appropriate safeguards.  In some jurisdictions, consent of the individual may be required.
