    I have a business that is offline and requires a background for the employee's. Does anyone know of a good service to use for background checks? I am sure there are a lot of popular ones but I would like some recommendations from my fellow BHW members.

    4. Deny their application
    5. Free background check complete.
    (Psst, don't actually do this)

    I wouldn't doubt its prevalence, although I just told Checkmate not to do it since, in the event that the applicant discovers the truth, I would imagine this could cause quite a few problems for the OP's company.

    That actually is a good idea. But I am looking more into criminal records etc.

    Depending on what country you're in: you can require the applicant to provide a police clearance/check, which will list any criminal records.
