  • What is included in an Evident background check?

    Evident, as a background check service, offers a variety of background check components that can be customized based on the specific needs of the client or organization. The information included in an Evident background check can encompass a range of data but typically includes:

    Criminal History: Evident may provide information about an individual's criminal record, including convictions, arrests, and any related details. This can involve both federal and state criminal records.
    Driving Records (Motor Vehicle Records - MVR): If relevant, Evident can provide details on an individual's driving history, including license status, moving violations, and restrictions.

  • How does Evident ensure compliance with the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA)?

    Evident ensures compliance with the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), which is a federal law in the United States regulating consumer reporting agencies and the use of consumer reports, by implementing various practices and features in its background check services. Here are some ways Evident ensures FCRA compliance:

    Adherence to FCRA Requirements: Evident strictly adheres to the FCRA's guidelines and requirements when conducting background checks. This includes obtaining consent from the individual before conducting a background check and providing them with a summary of their rights under the FCRA.
    Accurate and Complete Information: Evident makes every effort to provide accurate and complete information in its background check reports. This is crucial to FCRA compliance, as the FCRA mandates that consumer reporting agencies ensure the maximum possible accuracy of the information they provide.
    Timely Updates: The FCRA requires that individuals are informed in a timely manner if an adverse action is taken based on the information in a background check report. Evident offers automated FCRA compliance tools to facilitate this process, including pre-adverse and adverse action notifications.
    Secure Data Handling: Evident takes data security seriously. They employ robust security measures to protect sensitive personal information from data breaches, ensuring that personal data is handled securely and confidentially.
    Audit Trails: Evident often maintains audit trails and records of the background check process. This documentation is essential for demonstrating FCRA compliance and is helpful in case of legal or regulatory inquiries.

  • How often do Evident's Motor Vehicle Records (MVR) verification solutions provide fresh data?

    Evident's Motor Vehicle Records (MVR) verification solutions typically provide up-to-date information, including the latest data on an individual's driving record, license status, moving violations, and other relevant information. The frequency of updates depends on the state's Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) or the jurisdiction responsible for maintaining these records.

    In most cases, Evident's MVR verification solutions can access data from DMVs and other authoritative sources on a real-time or near-real-time basis. This means that you can expect the information to be current, with updates occurring as soon as new data becomes available. Evident's system is designed to ensure that organizations and employers have access to the most recent and accurate MVR information to make informed decisions, particularly in roles that require driving or involve transportation.

    It's important to note that the specific update frequency may vary by jurisdiction, and Evident's system is designed to obtain the most recent information available from each respective jurisdiction.
