ContinuCheck continually conducts monthly background checks for employees and contractors
Our persistent personnel screening solution provides:
Executive Order 13587 and paragraph 1-202, DoD 5220.22-M Change 2 of the NISPOM mandated the requirement for ALL cleared contractors, regardless of company size, to start implementing their Insider Threat Program (ITP) by 30 Nov 2016.
An ITP is designed to identify indicators, behaviors, and activities associated with potential insider threats and report them appropriately. This includes information indicative of a potential or actual insider threat falling into one of the 13 adjudicative guidelines.
ContinuCheck is uniquely designed for the federal contractor industry providing continual monthly criminal background checks at the national, state, and local level.
How is this different than a pre-employment background check?
Pre-employment background checks occur only once prior to employment. ContinuCheck conducts 12 monthly background checks starting prior to and throughout an employee's employment. For more details about how ContinuCheck is different and provides greater benefits, please see the About Us page.
What are the federal laws governing background checks?
The Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions (FACT) Act of 2003 authorizes the investigation of current employees and their right to receive a free report each year. The Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) governs the release of data, reporting criteria, and the process for correcting incorrect data. Please see the FCRA release and additional information on our Submit page.
How will my employees react to implementing continual background screening?
Based on an independent academic study commissioned by ContinuCheck, "employees and potential applicants do not perceive continuous background checks differently from traditional background checks. There were no differences between the two groups (traditional and continuous) on perceptions of organizational fairness, organizational attractiveness, and fairness of the selection system. Organizations using continuous background checks are perceived as being safer than organizations using traditional background checks."
How do shortcomings in national criminal databases impact background checks?
National criminal records databases often aggregate data from local records sources. Some of these reports take days, weeks, and even months to eventually be updated in national databases. Therefore, a single background check is only a snapshot in time where a candidate may have recently been convicted of a crime, however, the crime is undetected by national database searches until quite some time later. In addition, criminal records are only searched using first name, last name, and date of birth. Therefore, individuals with common first and last name combinations should carefully scrutinize the results of background checks for erroneous "false positive" findings.
