Background checks can prevent an employer from having to go through surprises as well as from losing a “negligent hiring??? law suit. According to statistics, about 72% of “negligent hiring” suits are lost by employers, and courts tell them they should have had more information about the employee. It is the employer’s responsibility to have all the necessary information about the prospective employees or applicants.
Also, according to statistics, between 30% and 40% of all job applications an employer might receive would have false or distorted facts. Therefore, the more thoroughly an employer analyzes the background of his applicants the less time he might lose and the fewer problems he might have to face in the future. This is why background checks can be very important at the time of analyzing prospective employees.
