Is there a difference between background checks for contractors vs. employees?

December 2, 2019

Yes, there is a difference between background screening for a contractor rather than an employee.

The PlusOne Solutions screening program is unique in that our contractor program works directly with the Customer, as well as the contract holder (i.e. network company) to ensure that the Customer needs are met.

This is different than an employee screening program in that the company still maintains the responsibility for the hire and termination of the actual employee (or contractor) but the Customer will establish the criteria for who can work on their contracts. The contractor screening is this model will only determine if someone is eligible to work on the Customer contract, not actual employment. All employment decisions remain the responsibility of the network company.
