Why trust? Verify.
When it comes to your horses why trust? Verify — with $35 criminal background checks.
Background checks offer an additional level of due diligence not attainable during job interviews, screening equestrian candidates’ pre-selected references or doing pre-scheduled horse farm visits.
Horse Authority provides easy access to accredited background checks. This screening tool gives you a historical look at candidates’ decision-making skills while confirming their identity. As a result, identify individuals whose charisma may outweigh their ethical standards.
What do they look for in this criminal background check?
Here’s a behind the scenes look at $35 criminal background checks only available to you at Horse Authority. It includes:
› Hands-on identity verification verifies the applicant’s name and birthdate against their social security number. This helps eliminate the possibility of false names and information.
Even more, when there is a discrepancy in the data, human investigators follow-up.
› A hands-on address trace determines the depth of investigation necessary by the applicant’s current and previous addresses.
› Investigators perform state and/or county criminal record searches at the appropriate courthouses to capture all misdemeanor and felony records.
› The national database search provides access to criminal data from all 50 states. It includes Guam, and Puerto Rico, provided by the National Background Directory.
The database supplies over 800 million criminal records and is used as a supplemental tool to the investigation, although never as a standalone method.
› A search of all 50 state repositories and the District of Columbia for known sex offenders.
› Reverification of national and sex offender criminal records.
› The background screening company returns the results on average within two to three business days.
The reporting methods follow the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) requirements.
A motor vehicle record check (MVR) can be added to any background check.
