If you, as an employer, are unable to perform a thorough background check before hiring an employee, your company could face many consequences. For instance, hiring someone with a criminal history could potentially endanger your customers or other employees. Furthermore, hiring someone who does not have the proper knowledge for their role could result in poor quality work or a lawsuit if an accident occurs.
