Dallas, Texas - According to The Integrity Center, Inc., Dallas, Texas, companies
are requesting a significant increase in the depth of the background checks that
they are conducting on senior job candidates.
Over the past two years the demands of both regulators and investors have gotten
the attention of companies who are trying to regain the public's confidence. The
Sarbanes-Oxley Act addresses corporate responsibility and accountability, and
companies must act to eliminate fraud.
Companies once wanted star quality candidates and believed that they would have no
skeletons or weaknesses to hide. Now, companies seem to be wary of everyone. Companies
are on edge. It used to be that it was considered bad form to perform a thorough
background check on a senior job candidate. But now, companies are driven to check
thoroughly by the fear of individual accountability. They know that people who tend
to commit fraud can be very good at it.
Companies also realize that one can only check thoroughly by using freshly retrieved
data. Companies know that using online stored or archived data for employment decisions
violates Federal law. They realize that dishonest leaders can cost them millions of
dollars and put their loyal employees out of work.
The Integrity Center, Inc., an all freshly retrieved data firm,
founded in 1984, and based in Dallas, TX, is recognized nationally for FCRA and HIPAA
compliant online employee background checking, employee files, and risk management,
for business, industry and government. The Integrity Center and its website are a
rich source of current information regarding the laws, procedures, and pitfalls in
all areas of background checking and personnel records.
