If You Are Not Fingerprinting, You Could Be Hiring a Criminal
A fingerprint-based background check is the most comprehensive check an employer can obtain of an applicant’s past criminal activity. The term “background check” can be vague; therefore, resulting in exposure to numerous definitions and opinions. Yet, most companies do not realize the hiring risk involved when a fingerprint background check is not performed. When tapping an online database with a potential hire’s name, date of birth, and/or social security number you may not be obtaining the full criminal activity of a potential new hire.
Fingerprints cannot be falsified at the time of an arrest; whereas, a name, date of birth, or social security number can, resulting in an incomplete check. Therefore, a fingerprint background check is the most comprehensive and viable background check available.
With the advancements in biometrics, the electronic fingerprint process is so convenient for employers to require as part of their hiring process. In fact many states have incorporated into their laws, that any applicant obtaining a professional or state required license, must succumb to and pass a fingerprint-based background check. The fingerprint check, if done electronically, is the most convenient and time efficient way to get any criminal activity transparent to the employer. With this information, the employer then has the opportunity to further evaluate if this person is the right person to hire for the position.

Not every state, as of yet, allows all employers access to electronic fingerprinting for their potential hiring candidates. The state of Ohio has had this technology available for over 10 years, and as the quest to hire the right person and understand their complete background, it is business smart to access this process. This process is even more important when your candidate is coming from another state where arrest records may not show up because the arrest happened outside of Ohio; this is when access to the FBI database becomes important.
