Civil Records Check

Civil record background checks will reveal the record of civil cases where the applicant was either a plaintiff or defendant. They will show the nature of the complaint, status of the case, date of filing, names of plaintiffs / defendants and whether a judgment was entered.

This report is designed to be utilized only where the existence of such civil records would be a critical factor in an applicant’s suitability for employment.

Employers should use these records only when relevant to a specific job function and when backed by appropriate policies and procedures.
