Ever think of doing a Florida background check on your employees, new boyfriend/girlfriend, or potential tenant or roommate? If so you are not alone. The do-it-yourself background investigation is a growing trend among savvy people who realize that you just can’t take a stranger at their word anymore. If you’ve just met someone and are considering any involvement with them in any capacity, doing a background investigation just makes sense.
For example, many employers in Florida now require potential employees to submit to a Florida background check beforejob will be offered. With the huge rise in employee theft and embezzlement, this trend will only continue to rise among employers of all sizes. After all, employers don’t want employees who have a history of stealing or dishonesty, especially if those employees will be working with sensitive information like customer credit card numbers and Social Security numbers.
Many people who are beginning to date someone new also perform background checks. You never can tell who someone really is, even after getting to know them, unless you look into their background to make sure they’re telling the truth about themselves. Your new boyfriend or girlfriend could have quite a sordid history of criminal behavior, and you’d never know it (because they’d never tell you!) unless you checked them out yourself. The same thing goes for any potential tenant or roommate you might be considering.
It is easy to see that if someone has a conviction or arrest record for theft, embezzlement, assault, drugs, or any other type of criminal activity, then chances are quite good that they will do this again. These are the people you want to avoid getting tangled up with.
Fortunately, it’s easy to do a Florida background check. Thanks to generous public records laws in the state, criminal records are public information, and anyone can access them. In Florida, you have the legal right to investigate the criminal history of anyone you wish. And it is something that can be done quickly and easily with some simple online tools.
