Important Verification Checks To Protect Your Company Against Liability

Various verification checks can be utilised to help mitigate risks, firstly at the point of recruitment / engagement of personnel/contractors, and secondly on an ongoing basis.

These can include:

  • National Police Checks – this can prevent engaging personnel with known criminal backgrounds who may have a higher chance of creating risk for the company.
  • Background checks – these verify a person’s employment and/or qualification background is as they say it is on their resume.
  • Bankruptcy checks – may be important for contractors.
  • Driver License status checks – initial and ongoing checks can mitigate the risk of consequences as referenced above, with unlicensed drivers.
