AUTOMATIC MANUAL REVIEW OF NON-NEGATIVE REPORTS
In order to match our turnaround times, many background screening companies will decrease the amount of data considered when matching potential records, and will push through instant results that are matched ONLY to the applicants first name, last name and date of birth. This often leads to a number of “false positive” hits on your applicant’s reports – a potential liability risk. Shield Screening is able to maintain these turnaround times while still offering a manual review of all non-negative reports. When a report is returned with potential negative data, it is automatically moved to a review queue where a trained, experienced verifier reviews the report for any additional identifiers on the record (middle names, aliases, address history, etc.). All non-positive results are removed from the report and only those records constituting a “best possible match” are included for your review. By removing these “false positive” records, we help you ensure that you make hiring decisions based on the best quality data available, and retain the qualified individuals that apply for your positions.
AUTOMATED RESULTS ON MANY PRODUCTS AND SERVICES
While some products and services require a more extensive review of data to complete, many of our products and services offer instant or near-instant turnaround times. Many of our county criminal searches are available via integrations built with the jurisdiction’s databases, so turnaround times are reduced by up to 300%. Additionally, special integrations built with drug screening providers allow negative results to be returned to your organization within twenty minutes of the applicant’s test. Only those tests with potential hits are sent to our MRO for review.
CRIMINAL MONITORING SERVICES
Shield Screening provides a monthly monitoring service that actively screens individuals for post-hire criminal records. A service that can be set up on a monthly or quarterly basis, the criminal monitoring service queries the applicant’s history on a national and local level, then reports any newly established criminal proceedings.
