Employers – Background Investigations
Finding out information about a prospective employee is not as simple as picking up the phone and calling the previous employer. Employers these days offer little information beyond the confirmation of previous employment, a practice that shields them from legal liability. Not obtaining additional information about a potential employee increases the likelihood of hiring a dangerous or unqualified employee. At UIS, our employment background investigation services can uncover important information regarding an applicant’s competence, honesty, trustworthiness, and other qualities your company cannot afford to be without. Our firm specializes in employment background research in the finance industry and the medical industry. We have varying levels and prices of employment background investigations, and we can customize the research to fit your specific field or industry.

Sexual harassment, hostile work environments, and discriminatory allegations are just some of the problems today’s business owner/managers must contend with. We have conducted hundreds of internal workplace investigations for private sector and governmental agencies. We have conducted internal affairs investigations for police departments and private businesses. We provide our clients with useful conclusions and recommendations to solve these issues, so everyone can get back to being productive.
