A background check, in the context of pre-employment screening, is the act of obtaining additional information on an applicant, as well as verifying the information that was provided by the applicant.  A background check usually includes the completion of one or more of the following: a social security number verification, a criminal conviction history check, a motor vehicle record check, a personal credit history check, an educational verification, prior employment verification and worker's compensation records search.  When conducting backgrounds checks, you obtain written permission from the applicant.
