“The rising instances of workplace infractions/ violations will necessitate background verification to become a necessary component of HR manuals in India.”
In order to preserve its reputation and protect valuable assets, it is important for a company to evaluate the credentials of the candidate it is hiring. For this purpose, employment background screening acts as one of the most valuable processes through which such information could be assembled. There exist a number of checks which could be conducted on a candidate prior to their hiring, namely educational, reference, criminal, employment, among other checks. A robust and formally written screening policy enumerating the scope and limit of each check and the protocol to which the investigators should abide by must be formally introduced.
