Businesses that hire employees without screening them are vulnerable to all kinds of problems, ranging from lawsuits to bankruptcy. Past behavior is usually a good predictor of future behavior. Thus, conducting a background check can help a company avoid the risk of trouble and even negligent-hiring lawsuits, in which employers can be held liable for the unlawful or improper actions of their employees if it can be shown they did not make reasonable inquiries into their background.
