Criminal Background Checks

Hiring honest, dependable people is critical for any business, and non-negotiable for many.

The process of checking criminal histories or a background check, however, can be a tricky one, with all kinds of privacy and confidentiality laws, rules and regulations to navigate. Those issues are only compounded when you are dealing with international candidates, or with prospective employees who have worked internationally.

Name changes, dealing with various law enforcement agencies and other factors can all add to the challenge of conducting thorough but legally compliant criminal background checks.

AIS can help you navigate the minefield of international and domestic criminal record checks.

AIS can help. We have many years’ experience conducting pre-employment screening and other data verification processes around the world. Our in-house systems use a combination of the best technology, a network of global contacts and our own highly skilled data analysts to collect, collate and report exactly what you need to know.

Take the guesswork out of hiring or promoting, and use our bouquet of background screening services.

Many Different Organisations and Institutions

Criminal background record checks are rarely as simple as contacting one organisation and receiving the results you need. There are usually many different institutions and organisations that need to be approached, and there may be various methods required to contact each one. Timing of enquiries and results can vary, and when you’re dealing with more than one country to conduct your checks, things become even more complex.

Let us create a criminal history checking system that works for your company, and gets you the information you need, when you need it.

Discreet and Confidential background checks

One of the biggest issues for employers and prospective employers, when conducting background and criminal record checks is to ensure that they maintain the utmost in privacy and confidentiality. Personal information is always sensitive, and criminal history in particular should be treated with the highest levels of discretion.

By outsourcing the collection, collation and reporting duties related to these types of checks, and by allowing us to follow our permission and compliance processes, you can ensure that you never fall foul of best practices and legislation.

The fact is, while criminal record checks are critical and can save you money and liability down the line, the process itself can leave you open to risk. Avoid the risk completely, and let the trained professionals, proven processes and experience that AIS has gathered over the decades work for you.
