Academic Verification Services

Verify Your Candidate's Academic & Education Qualifications

Make Sure Your Candidate Has the Professional Education They Claim

Don’t fall victim to hiring unqualified and untruthful candidates. When your business is hiring for a position that requires a certain amount of training, certification, or education, make sure to verify that you’re receiving a candidate that has the necessary knowledge. At Barada Associates, we ensure all academic verification background checks are 100% accurate.

Why Should Companies Perform Education Verifications?

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 education 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 education 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, professional, or specialized education. Should the FLSA challenge the exemption, it’s crucial that the employer be able to prove the worker has appropriate credentials.

Barada Associates has years of experience confirming not only enrollment, attendance, and/or graduation dates, but also the degree and/or certification that an applicant has earned at a specified school.

How Far Back Do Education Verifications Go?

Typical employment and academic background checks verify all post-high school educational claims (sometimes certifications are also verified). The period of time actually covered in education verification results will differ with each individual that you’re performing the education or degree verification on. Ultimately, the length of education background checks depends on how long the applicant was a student at the educational institution and when the degrees or certificates were awarded.
