Why do Police Verification?
The job market in India is witnessing a boom. Not only people from rural areas are moving to urban areas for a better job, but the Indian market has also attracted a lot of foreign nationals to pursue their career.
In such an environment, it can be a challenge knowing who is genuine and who isn’t. The safety of other employees in the organisation is at stake if a criminal record verification is not conducted. A police verification service can help corporates unearth any skeletons in the prospective hire’s closet, thereby saving them from making a terrible mistake.
When it comes to police verification, a criminal record verification can help management know if a candidate has a criminal history and whether he/she can be trusted or not.
Rise in technology has made it easy for individuals to fake their identity and pretend to be someone they’re not. The sequence of incidents involving fake documentation, forged signatures and false promises of jobs, marriages and college seats have left everyone shaken.
Police verification can help individuals and organisations eliminate these threats by understanding if the person they’re in contact with is worthy of trust or not. Using various checks such as litigation database check, criminal record check, court record check; police verification can help us get a bird’s eye-view of the person we’re having inspected.
We, at AuthBridge, conduct police verification to ensure that your candidate doesn’t have a past criminal record or an FIR lodged against him/her at any specific address. This can be done using two modes:
- Through a law firm
- Through our in-house team
Police Verification – More Information
A single rotten apple can ruin the entire batch. This same goes for your employees too. Take the case of leading IT company’s hiring scandal. One of the company’s senior recruiters was discovered taking bribes from colleges to place students in roles within the company. The individual in question had taken lakhs worth of bribes to place select students in the corporate.
By the time this company discovered the truth, it was too late. Its reputation as a fair employer was lost and so was the quality of its hire. A thorough criminal record verification of the recruiter during his hiring would have helped the company identify if he had criminal records and arrest records to his name for similar cases at his previous place of employment.
Cases like this make us understand why police verification of employees is important. In corporates, a criminal record check can help companies avoid hiring dishonest candidates.
