Amid, workplace violence and security concerns, pre-employment screening is a necessary tool to avoid lawsuits and costly hiring mistakes. Investigating the background of a potential hire can help minimize the risk of negligent-hiring lawsuits. The FBI estimated in 2011 that workplace violence cost the American workforce approximately $36 billion per year. While relatively rare, the impact of non-fatal workplace violence is very significant. In the 1980s and 1990s workplace violence became front page news after a series of Post Office murders. A 2011 report by the U.S. Department of Justice, “Workplace Violence, 1993-2009,” found that In 2009, there were 572,000 reported occurrences of nonfatal workplace violence — including various forms of assault — and 521 individuals who were victims of homicide in the workplace. A recent example of workplace violence occurred on September 16, 2013, when lone gunman Aaron Alexis fatally shot twelve people and injured three others in a mass shooting at the headquarters of the Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) inside the Washington Navy Yard in Southeast Washington, D.C. Even though Alexis had a security clearance, a more thorough background check would have revealed an arrest in 2004 involving a firearm and he might not have been granted his clearance.
Workplace violence isn’t the only reason employers should consider hiring Eagle Six Group to complete a pre-employment screening investigation. According to the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners, in 2012 the amount stole annually from businesses in the United States by employees was 50 billion dollars. 75% of employees have stolen at least once from and employer and 37% have stolen at least twice. 33% of business bankruptcies are caused by employee theft. The average amount stolen was $175, 000 and in 25% of the cases over $1,000,000 was stolen. Do you really know who is working for you or who you are about to hire? Are your managers looking out for the best interest of your company? Over 37% of the total thefts committed were by management and the average length of time it took to uncover the fraud was 2 years.
Businesses are not the only ones who should consider conducting pre-employment screenings. Individuals who are thinking about hiring a contractor, a baby sitter, a nanny, or anyone else to do work around their home, business or family should look into doing a pre-employment screening.
