A background check is typically conducted to uncover a person’s history by looking up his or her public records.  A background check may include; criminal records, court records, police records, judgements, liens, civil records, work history and financial history. Background checks can also be used for identity verification for those being reviewed for employment screening or a person of trust such as; teachers, doctors and nurses, airport and government employees or those requiring a security clearance.  Background checks that are used for employment or verification must be performed by companies that comply with the Fair Credit Reporting Act ( FCRA ) in order to be legally compliant. This part is very important because this process is overseen and enforced by the Federal Trade Commission ( FTC ) and there are some very important points to review before a person’s background information can be legally processed such as; getting a person’s written permission to perform a background check and letting them know that information found in the background check may be used to determine if they’re eligible for employment. There are unofficial background reports can be run through 3rd party websites that offer public records but are not legally binding records that can be used for employment or screening purposes. Often times a person might want to know who their neighbors are or maybe to verify what is in their own background record so it’s easier and more convenient to use one of these public record sites. Search Quarry is one of these 3rd party public record sites that indexes public background record information, for observation purposes only, that allows the average person to lookup publicly available information on just about anyone.

  1. Wow, I had no idea that so much went into a background check. It makes sense that there would be all sorts of steps to take to making sure that someone doesn’t have a criminal background, but for some reason I never thought about it. I’m grateful for these services and all that they do to help systems within society function properly.
