Checkr offers continuous checks, which monitor real-time data sources for changes to a person’s record. If a record changes, Checkr does checks in the appropriate jurisdictions and generates a new report.
Results from continuous checks supplement your overall trust and safety program by finding recent reportable information.
A person must provide proper consent for enrollment in continuous checks. Specifically, people must authorize you to run background checks throughout their time with your organization. It is your responsibility to both obtain consent and unenroll people when they leave your organization. Consult your legal counsel to ensure that you have proper consent procedures in place for continuous checks.
You can enroll only people in the United States in continuous checks. Except for independent contractors, you should not enroll California candidates or workers in continuous products.
Continuous checks use the data sources below:
- Checkr real-time data: Checkr completes over 22 million county searches every year. Checkr monitors those searches for results that match everybody you enrolled in continuous checks. Because of Checkr’s commitment to fair chance hiring, reports from continuous checks include only records from the past year.
- Arrest record feeds: Checkr uses information from a real-time feed as a pointer search to identify counties to search. Checkr reports only records with recent convictions and pending cases.
Online criminal databases: Checkr uses information from the data sources below:
- Electronic county databases
- Global watchlist databases
- National criminal databases
- Sex offender registries
Results from continuous checks appear in background check reports.
