Best Practices & Compliance Process Functions

The laws that accompany the transaction of a background check can become somewhat of a daunting factor when customers are choosing to issue a screening. Smart Screen has a process of compliance that is quick and easy.

Five best practices that function to adhere to the top standard of compliance:


Proceed with Caution

Smart Screen will never contact a previous employer mentioned as a reference without verbal consent from the candidate.


The team at Smart Screen will always take measures to confirm that all past employment contact information for the candidate being scanned is true and reliable, i.e. a candidate’s reference is a prior boss or co-worker opposed to a friend or family member.



Smart Screen will always run on a foundation of standards that does not discriminate against any individual. No background check process will be contingent based upon a persons race, ethnicity, religious beliefs, etc.


Smart Screen will always keep record of efforts made to retrieve proof of evidence in our attempt to contact past employers, i.e. the documentation of phone calls and emails sent.

Extra Steps

Smart Screen finds reference opportunities to be an aspect of the background checking process that all employers / customers should take advantage of.
