EMPLOYMENT - Personal References

Twenty-five percent of employment references are fabricated. Oftentimes human resource departments are reluctant to give information for fear of being hit with a defamation lawsuit. Since past employers have significant insight regarding an individual, the challenge becomes finding out as much as possible without jeopardizing anyone. Backgrounds USA has the skills to interview your prospective employeesí references in an attempt to ascertain honesty and character. The wealth of information provided by third parties when acquired by a skilled investigator is infinitely more valuable than information provided by the applicant.


Backgrounds USA first determines how long the reference has known the individual and the nature of their relationship. We then find information about the following:

  • the individualís character

  • productivity

  • punctuality

  • drug & alcohol use

  • interpersonal skills

  • management skills

  • employability

  • strengths & weaknesses

  • responsibilities and achievements.

If you have specific information that you are seeking, we can design legally worded customized questions to obtain the information you need.


NOTE:  According to the Fair Credit Reporting Act,: "no consumer may bring any action or proceeding in the nature of defamation, invasion of privacy or negligence with respect to the reporting of information against any consumer reporting agency, any user of information ...." Because Backgrounds USA is a consumer reporting agency, we are protected under the Fair Credit Reporting Act. (601.e) This means that we are able to provide you with more of the information you need.
