Employment Background Checks

HR ProFile, established in 1991, is America's preeminent employment screening firm. Both our multi-county court criminal and single county court criminal checks are the most thorough, up to date, FCRA-compliant employment checks available, housed at the county court originating source. For the over 4,300 county courts in the United States, we cover them all directly, everyday, for both Felony and Misdemeanor criminal records in upper and lower courts. We average 86% completed in 48 hours or less. Most of these courts are NOT available on-line and are manually covered.

The biggest issue in our industry is achieving a perceived value of Criminal background Checks. Most employers and CRAs do not measure the times that a criminal search yields any valuable or job deniable information. At HR ProFile, we have taken data compiled from 25 years of experience in this industry and created a matrix of comparable percentages to help you understand the value of a given criminal check. The data used in this matrix is nationwide and across all industries. We call this the Hit Ratio or the number of hits found that would be potentially deniable information. While your Hit ratio may vary from these averages, what is important is the relationship between the types of checks.

Multi County Court Criminal Check 25% Hit Ratio

Our Multi County Criminal Employment Background Checks developed by HRP in 1992, are not limited to a specific state; we check upper and lower courts in any county seat in the United States.
