What kind of checks do you want doing? Background checks is normally a variety of reports.
Criminal records - you should ask in the application form about their criminal history, if they have any. If they lie and you subsequently find out, you can get rid of them easy. You might be able to get hold of public records. This might be available from civil cours or something.
Reference checks - Ask suitable candidates for references, like previous employers (ask for their name, salary and job title). When interviewing you can ask questions not related to the job, which will help gage ideas. For example, you are in a team, someone is not playing ball, but you got a deadline. What would you do?
Basically ask questions to see if they are a team player, they are capable of working by themselves etc.
Driving records - ask them if they have a full licence, any convictions etc
Medical history - again, ask them. I dont know how you can get hold of it yourself.
Consumer report - kind of like a credit report. Credit card companies, financial institutions work with credit agencies. In UK, there is a company called Experian that do it.
I ask what country because each country will probably have their own body. For example, In California, there is a body called FCRA, they give information about a person’s “character, general reputation, personal characteristics.
