  • Diplomas received
  • Degrees & certificates awarded
  • Dates of attendance
  • Names used when attending
  • Additional information as available
Employment Verifications*

  • Current Salaries
  • Reason for termination

Driver License History*
Reviewing an applicant’s Motor Vehicle Record is an important search for those required to operate a company or personal vehicle for business purposes. Records highlight driving history over the past 3-7 years and are available in all 50 states and Washington DC. Reports include all personal identifiers as well as offenses and citations. Commercial Driving Records allow employers and their agents to comply with FMCSA requirements by searching within the “Commercial Driver’s License Information System” for any prior licenses, current CDL and up to three prior licenses held by the individual.
  • Standard Motor Vehicle Record
  • Commercial Driver’s License Information Systems (CDLIS)
  • National Drivers Registry (NDR)
  • Department of Transportation (DOT) Drivers Records
Multi-Court (National) Criminal Database Search
This is a database composed of criminal records purchased from private data sources and other criminal record sources. Although it is often sold as a “nationwide” search, it is not. This search is only useful for identifying potential cases related to the applicant. If records are found with this database, we will verify the case at the county level to confirm the details of the records, as required by the Fair Credit Reporting Act.
Statewide Criminal Record Search
Currently, there is direct access to state repositories in 43 states. Statewide databases cast a wider net on determining if your candidate has a criminal record, but users are encouraged to use this search as a complement to a 7 year county search. For state’s that do not allow for direct access, users should consider the National Criminal Database Search as a complement to county research.
County Criminal Record Search*
County Criminal Records Searches are available in each county throughout the United States and are conducted in superior courts, upper courts, lower courts, and/or municipal court records as publicly available. These searches are used to determine if an applicant/employee has a felony, misdemeanor and in some instances, an infraction filing within the last seven years or longer if the record includes a legally reportable conviction. Completed reports consist of only legally reportable information; typically including:
  • date of arrest
  • date of filing
  • charges
  • level of charges
  • disposition date
  • final disposition of charges
  • any applicable sentence or penalty
Federal Criminal Record Search
Federal Criminal Court Searches identify criminal activity prosecuted through the federal court system. Criminal activity tried in Federal District Courts typically involves violations of the Constitution or other federal law. Such crimes include:
  • Tax evasion
  • Embezzlement
  • Kidnapping
  • mail fraud and other federal statute violations
  • Securities fraud
There are 94 federal judicial districts throughout the country, including at least one district in each state, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. Three territories of the United States — the Virgin Islands, Guam, and the Northern Mariana Islands — have district courts that hear federal cases. Federal criminal convictions do not appear in state or county felony and misdemeanor court record searches, therefore a federal district search is imperative if such records are needed. Each state is comprised of federal districts.
Federal Civil Record Search
This check is used to determine any civil actions filed against the subject. Civil records are obtained from the county courthouses by our network of professional court researchers. Records include the following information:
  • Date of filing
  • Suit description
  • Disposition date
  • entire disposition
  • Identifier’s used to locate the case
OFAC/Patriot Act Search
The Global Homeland Security Check is an instant, inexpensive tool that mitigates foreseeable risk to your customers, employees and physical assets. It cross references your applicant’s name against over 130 worldwide known terrorist and fugitive databases that include individuals, organizations and companies considered to be a threat to global and national security. Our database is updated daily as the various lists are modified. This service is a valuable tool to ensure compliance with the USA Patriot Act. The following data sources are searched:
  • Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) List of Specially Designated Nationals (SDN) and Blocked Persons
  • Politically Exposed Persons List
  • FBI Most Wanted Terrorists List
  • FBI Top Ten Most Wanted List
  • U.S. Secret Service Most Wanted Fugitives
  • United Nations Consolidated Sanctions List
  • European Union Terrorist List
  • Royal Canadian Mounted Police Most Wanted
  • Australia Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade List
  • Russian Federal Fugitives
  • Scotland Yard’s Most Wanted
  • World’s Most Wanted Fugitives
According to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, the following industries are considered to be those most targeted by terrorists. This search is a must for those in these industries:
  • Agriculture and Food
  • Water
  • Public Health and Healthcare
  • Emergency Services
  • Defense Industrial Base
  • Information Technology
  • Telecommunications
  • Transportation Systems
  • Banking and Finance
  • Chemical
  • Postal and Shipping
  • National Monuments and Icons
  • Dams
  • Nuclear Reactors, Materials and Waste
  • Government Facilities
Drug Testing

Included in the test is collection using our patient service centers, legal confirmation at our certified labs, and chain of custody forms. An adulterants check, which tests for substances people ingest to mask the presence of drugs in their system, is also included at no additional charge.
