Is public trust a major factor in the public’s perception of you and your business? Imagine the embarrassment and liability of placing an employee in a situation of public trust and later learning that employee has committed a crime against one of your customers because you did not require a fingerprint background check. The difference between a standard background check and a fingerprint background check is that with fingerprinting you get national results from the FBI database.
