A search of criminal conviction records at the federal level may reveal any criminal judgment and the resultant penalty. This search will eliminate the possibility of hiring an applicant who may have been convicted of a federal criminal charge, such as mail fraud, wire fraud, bank robbery, and federal drug charges.
A search of civil records can reveal civil judgments against the subject/applicant, as well as any pending suits which may constitute a contingent liability to the applicant and/or the potential employer. This search can also reveal suits filed for Fraud or Contract Breaches which may not have been filed criminally.
