UrbanVerified can be used to conduct verification checks which can assist in identifying fraudulent applications and lead to greater success in choosing the right employee. By choosing the right employee, replacement costs can be reduced and organisational productivity can be increased.
As well as employee checks for organisations, verification checks may also be requested by an individual to provide to potential employers.
That various checks that can be included in the verification report include:
- 100 point + ID check
ID totalling 100 or more points will be sighted to verify a person’s identity by confirming their full name, date of birth and current address.
- Qualification and credential validation
Qualification and credential validation is important to ensure that a person’s indicated level of education is accurate, particularly if a specific qualification is required for legal or compliance purposes. A qualification and credential check will confirm the qualification/s that the person obtained as well as attendance and graduation dates with the relevant institute/s. Any discrepancies will be highlighted.
- Employment history validation
Employment history validation can be important to ensure that a person’s indicated level of expertise is accurate. An employment history check will contact previous employers to ascertain positions held, dates of employment, responsibilities and reveal any potential discrepancies.
- Directorship and significant shareholding search
A directorship check can be conducted to not only avoid any conflicts of interest arising due to a person’s directorships or significant shareholdings, but to also gain further insight into past experience. A search of the Australian Securities Investment Commission database will be undertaken to obtain any relevant directorship and significant shareholder information.
- Criminal history search
A criminal history may indicate that a person is unsuitable for specific roles. A criminal history search will reveal any court outcomes or current investigations relating to criminal and traffic prosecutions Globally.
- Bankruptcy check
A history of bankruptcy may indicate that a person is unsuitable for specific roles. The UrbanVerified bankruptcy check can advise if a person has been declared bankrupt either through an application from creditors or through self-nomination.
- Basic credit check
A credit check can provide insight into a person’s responsibility and reliability. A basic credit check investigates whether the person has been involved in any bankruptcy proceedings or other financial litigation.
- Anti-money laundering check
An anti-money laundering check can be crucial to mitigating reputational and regulatory risk. Searches will be performed on all relevant national and international databases to reveal any associations to money laundering, terrorist organisations or politically exposed persons.
