Employment Screening Resources (ESR) Background Checks

Employment Screening Resources or ESR is a background screening company located in Novato, CA. ESR specializes in pre-employment screening, employee onboarding, compliance and post hire background screening.

What is in an ESR Background Check?

ESR background checks may contain but are not limited to the following:

  • Credit Reports
  • Social Security Number Trace
  • Criminal History
  • Civil Records
  • Driving Record
  • Social Media Screening
  • Verifications – employment, education, references
  • Sanctions and Watchlists Checks

The type of job you are seeking and what the employer requires will determine what searches are done for a background check and what other types of pre-employment screening are necessary. A background check should never be done without your permission. Generally when applying for a job, there will be a consent form that you sign for a background check.

What If My ESR Background Check Was Wrong?

Errors on employment background checks are unfortunately, common. This happens most often due to mixed files or outdated databases. Job seekers can suffer greatly due to background check errors, causing denial of a job, delaying start dates, and missed opportunities for promotions. Those who have continual background monitoring can even get fired over an inaccurate background check.

If you have been denied a job, your start date has been delayed, you have been denied a promotion, or you have been let go due to an inaccurate background check you may have a case.
