FAQ Series: Is there information that is unavailable?

Written by NationSearch Information on November 29, 2017

Is there any information that I cannot obtain from performing a Background check?

Yes.  Each state has their own statutes governing what information can be shared with the employer.  Some examples are:  bankruptcies over 10 years old, civil suits, liens etc. over 7 years old.  Some personal information requires the written permission of the applicant in order to obtain (i.e. military records, medical records, etc.). Some require the position salary to be above a certain threshold before some information can be released (i.e.$75,000).  Some position duties do not meet the requirements for performing a credit check.  NationSearch can assist you in navigating the State and Federal laws and statutes.
