Accounting Firms-CPA’s-Bookkeepers Employment Screening
Even more so than most other businesses, CPA’S, Accounting firms And Bookkeepers often handle both business and personal client’s funds and all other financial data.
Accounting firms, bookkeepers and CPA’S need to be able to guarantee that every employee is trustworthy and will operate in the utmost good faith.
One important step a firm can take to help mitigate the risk of hiring a bad employee hiring decision is to secure a thorough criminal record background check.
This should also include a check of Federal criminal records in all states where the applicant has lived for the past 7 years.
A thorough initial criminal record background check is the primary building block in a firm’s risk management policy.
Periodic re-screening can also give indicators of how a person’s life may have changed.
