If you are like most human resource departments, then chances are there are numerous projects, responsibilities, and requests are being juggled every day. We built our Easy E-Signature process with you in mind. We figure that any way we can free up more of your time for other tasks, we will have a very happy customer. Here is the way it works:
Within our application, you can choose to process a background report the traditional way by having the applicant sign a disclosure and consent form, filing that form, providing the applicant a summary of their rights under the FCRA, then deciphering poor handwriting and cross referencing the application to then do the data entry for the background check. (Blah. I think I just threw up in my mouth thinking about that). Our human resource friendly, Easy E-Signature process provides you another option. All you do is enter the applicant’s name, email address, and you are done. That’s it. You just get an email when the report is complete.
A customized email invitation is sent to the applicant explaining the whole screening process. The applicant then clicks a link that enables him/her to electronically sign a 50 state compliant disclosure and authorization form consenting to the screening. A summary of the applicant’s rights under the FCRA is provided to the applicant and best of all, the applicant enters all of their own information relevant to the screening report you are requesting on that candidate.
This dramatically reduces the time that you have to spend facilitating background screening. It also reduces errors by as much as 15% because the applicant is entering in their own data. In addition, the process provides an extra layer of liability protection for you against age discrimination and other equal employment lawsuits because we are collecting the sensitive information from the candidate directly.
