What is the nanny background check screening and report delivery procedure?

Wondering what the nanny background screening process is? Here is a step by step guide.

  • Set up your nanny background screening account by click on ORDER NOW. You will be redirected to our nanny background screening partner, National Crime Search..
  • Download the Candidate Records Release Authorization form and have your applicant complete it for you. The authorization form can now be sent via email to the applicant from your NCS account. It can easily be completed, signed and submitted digitally. It saves a lot of time and pre-populates the information needed to order the search. This is a legal requirement of the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA). NCS advises you must keep this signed release on file for 6 years for audit purposes.
  • Select the items you wish to have searched. The minimum nanny background screening package includes a SSN trace/address verification plus a criminal records search in one jurisdiction.

  • A typical search is returned within 3 -5 business days – you are notified via email. You will log in to view the completed report. International searches and civil records searches will require additional time.

The nanny background screening process is also suitable for other household employees such as senior caregivers and housekeepers.
