Background checks are essential to the ability of parties to enter into various legally binding and as such are always a great idea. Background checks typically require written permission before performing the investigation. Occasionally, you may obtain reports without permission, but the findings can lack in-depth details.

If the background check negatively affects the consumer, the party accessing public records must furnish a copy of the report and an overview of consumer rights set up by the FCRA, and allow the consumer fair time to challenge the report. Due to the increased threat of identity theft, some states (eg California), now can require the employer to provide a copy of background check to the consumer, regardless of its content.Call the numbers below (or visit the websites listed) to know how to access the specific background information you are seeking. Public information may be accessed online or by phone, mail or in person.

It is always better to call before you send written questions to obtain accurate information addressing / ordering.
