Other important information
Background checks of curriculum vitae are often requested by employers on medical job candidates for employment screening, especially on candidates seeking a position that requires a position of trust, such as hospital and government.
Results of a background check typically include past employment verification, credit history, and criminal history.
These checks are often used by employers as a means of judging a job candidate's past mistakes, character fitness, and to identify potential hiring risks for safety and security reasons. Background checks are also used to thoroughly investigate potential government employees in order to be given a security clearance.
Checks are frequently conducted to confirm information found on an employment application or résumé/CV.
They may also be conducted as a way to further differentiate potential employees and pick the one the employer feels is best suited for the position. Australian employers have an obligation to make sure their work environment is safe for all employees and helps prevent other employment problems in the workplace.
