Certiphi Screening is a subsidiary or Vertical screen. Certiphi Screening specializes in pre-employment screening services for the healthcare industry.
The information that Certiphi will screen for is dependent upon what the company you are applying with asks for. You will be required to give permission for a background check before one is performed. This is generally a standard part of the application process.
A background check should never be performed without your permission.
Certiphi background checks may include the following screening services:
Unfortunately, mistakes on background checks happen often. Under the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) Certiphi must make sure that the information they provide is accurate and up-to-date.
Inaccurate information on a background check is generally due to a mixed file. This is the most common mistake. Your information is mixed with the information of another individual. This often happens due to similar or same names. Mixed files are more difficult to catch when background check companies use automated systems to grab criminal history.
Luckily, you have rights under the FCRA that allow you to dispute the errors and sue for damages.
Mistakes on Certiphi background checks can be especially damaging. Even if you do not have a criminal history, a mix up with another person’s file can prevent you from getting a job and ruin your reputation in the healthcare arena. When your background check is wrong, you have the right to dispute the errors.

If you do not receive this information from the employer you may have a case against the employer along with the background check company.
