Using Civil Courts Record Searches As Part of a Pre-Employment Screening Program?

Civil suits for pre-employment screening purposes are filed when a plaintiff believes they are due restitution or compensation for a wrong done by a defendant. Civil searches are conducted at the upper level court in each jurisdiction requested.

Although a civil court records search will cover lawsuits filed for damages, bankruptcy, personal injury etc. where a plaintiff feels a defendant has violated a civil law or code and seeks compensation by legal means, National Crime Search Inc. can only report the information when the applicant is the defendant. Consequently, the civil court records search is of limited value to the family seeking to learn if the applicant has been a plaintiff – in other words you will not learn if the applicant has sued former employers.
