PRISM has partnered with Plexus Global to provide background check services.
Employers have a duty to ensure prospective employees will not pose a risk to the public, other agency employees, or the agency. Comprehensive background checks are a necessary and important pre-employment best practice that will help members meet this obligation.
Using a consumer reporting agency, like Plexus Global, to conduct background checks ensures compliance with requirements for safeguarding the confidentiality of information obtained. Limiting employees’ involvement reduces the member’s exposure and maintains the confidentiality of the information obtained in the background check process.
