The National Database Search when used with Auto Verify casts a very wide net and is part of any criminal background check but it is never recommended as the primary or only resource for conducting employment related criminal background checks. It is simply a complimentary tool for conducting a more thorough search at the county courthouse level.
*A note about database searches:
The Multi-state criminal background check which includes a 50 state Sex Offender Registry check and Terrorist WATCH are compiled from multiple public record data sources.
Reports from these types of searches are NOT FCRA COMPLIANT and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has issued an opinion letter specifically on the use of criminal databases and has taken the position that database searches do not comply with FCRA but could be used as a pre-screening tool to “generate leads,” and should be used for that purpose only and that using information of this type for employment purposes violates Section 613(a)(2) of the Fair Credit Reporting Act
