A temporary staffing solutions provider typically do initial testing by entering the candidate’s name on search engines and searching local court websites. However, that is a basic level search therefore for detailed and precise verification taking help from the best employment screening companies makes more sense. It is important to note that background verification should generally be treated on a case-to-case basis.

Drug Screenings

“Drug screening is imperative. It is critical from a employee’s compensation and safety angel,” says Sandeep. The presence of drugs like amphetamines, opiates, marijuana and cocaine signal a substance abuse issue and could lead to on duty accidents. To protect our clients against any potential liabilities, Infojini conducts drug screening along with other essential tests.

Past Employment Verification

Additionally, a professional staffing company should always perform past employment verification. It can be done by calling the previous employers and verifying the details mentioned by the candidate. A past-employment verification check verifies the declared details are accurate. It is possible for a candidate to mask the information in the application form. During the verification, if a recruiter smells something fishy, that could mean the employee is not reliable.

Infojini conducts temporary staffing employment screening before hiring an employee for their clients, to ensure they come up as an asset and not a liability for the company.
