Background Screening Services

P•A•S Investigations has created an alliance with a highly competitively priced background screening firm that will provide you with premium screening services.


Pre-employment screening is a necessary part of any business’s hiring procedure due to the high mobility of today’s society. Generally, a simple background screening consisting of a criminal search and social security trace will give the employer a good representation of the person they intend to hire. As well, through the Negligent Hiring Doctrine, which is legally recognized in approximately thirty-one states, an employer is responsible for, and can be held accountable for, checking the background and references of any job applicant before placing that applicant in a position of high public contact.


The negligent hiring theory holds that an employer owes a duty to coworkers, customers, and the general public, and any of these groups may sue an employer for the harmful acts of an employee if the company failed to adequately research an employee’s background. In ruling on negligent hiring and/or retention claims, courts generally examine how and to what extent employers investigated an applicant’s background prior to hiring.


To that end, the first-rate background screening firm we have joined with has streamlined the employment screening process, allowing us to obtain results instantly in many cases.


If you would like to utilize the background screening services we offer, please use the forms on this page.


For a pre-employment screening, the applicant must complete and sign the appropriate employment application (most companies will utilize the P•A•S California Private Employer application found below and under HR Forms) and the Disclosure and Authorization Form also found below.
