Employment Eligibility Verification
Confirming the identity and work eligibility status of your applicant is an essential step in the screening process. BIS can confirm that your applicant is eligible to work in the United States. This search is conducted through the Department of Homeland Security and the Social Security Administration. DHS provides a confirmation number for each transaction, which serves as affirmation that the search was conducted.
BIS' Address Search is a first-step due diligence confirmation that the background check is being conducted in the appropriate places. Many workers in the healthcare industry can be transient. BIS' Address Search also provides a search of the Death Master Index, which confirms that the SSN provided does not belong to a deceased person. This search also provides an SSN Validation. The SSN Validation confirms that the number is a validly issued number as well as the date and state of issue.
A criminal history is a critical search in the screening of individuals working in the healthcare industry. BIS recommends a search of the courts where the individual has resided, worked and attended school within a timeframe of at least 7 years.
Verifying that your applicant possesses the credentials they purport to hold is another crucial step in the screening process. BIS can confirm licensing, certification and membership/participation in professional organizations. BIS possesses an internal call center staffed with personnel who are familiar with the healthcare industry. BIS never outsources credential verifications, which ensure that our high standards are met and that results are turned around quickly.
The education verification goes hand in hand with BIS' credentialing program. BIS recommends verification of an individual's educational history, particularly if it directly relates to the position for which they are applying.
