When you’re being considered for a position of employment, you want to give the best possible impression to your potential employer. This includes accurately representing your work experience, your skills and qualifications, and your criminal history.
When the time comes to perform the background check necessary for your new job, you want to feel confident that there aren’t going to be any hidden surprises. However, in some cases, the criminal histories of other people can cross over into your background check. This happens especially frequently for people who have common names like “Steven Smith” or similar.
All it takes is a single false background check to ruin your employment prospects or even your employment status, as it’s not uncommon for a false background check to be used as grounds for termination of an existing employee. This can leave the affected person feeling embarrassed, disappointed, and confused, not to mention powerless in changing the documented criminal history to reflect reality.
