Make Sure Your Candidate Has the Education They Claim

Don’t fall victim to hiring unqualified and untruthful candidates. At Barada, we ensure all academic verification background checks are 100% accurate.

Why Should Companies Professional Verify Academic History?

Although some companies consider academic verification less important than criminal and credit history checks, the second most common misrepresentation on resumes and job applications (per the FBI) is academic history.

Failing to uncover academic puffery (or outright falsehood) may not seem like a risky behavior, especially when compared to detrimental actions such as hiring a dangerous individual who later causes workplace violence. Nevertheless, performing full academic verification is very important for a number of reasons.

The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) makes it clear that some positions classified as Exempt require employees to have advanced or specialized education. Should the FLSA challenge the exemption, it’s crucial that the employer be able to prove the worker has appropriate credentials.

How Far Back Do Education Verifications Go?

A typical employment background check verifies all post high school educational claims (sometimes certifications are also verified). The period of time actually covered in an education verification report depends on how long the applicant attended the educational institution and when the degree or certificate was awarded.
