The use of Financial Records Checks
Whilst some in the general public question the use of financial records to ascertain a potential candidates suitability, these types of checks do serve a purpose. The basic premise being that should a person be incumbered by a large debt, or have a precarious financial history, that they are more susceptible to bribery, embezzelment and fraud. Whilst this may be insufficient as a standalone basis for not hiring, it is a factor in risk mitigation and coupled with a range of other checks may provide a more complete profile.
