Dependable Employment Background Checks for the Government Jobs

When you hire Barada Associates, you can trust that we’ll get the job done right and provide government agencies – whether at the local, state or federal level – with detailed background reports on all candidates, including government contractors. Government employees are in charge of handling sensitive information and taxpayer money, and they need to be trusted with this huge responsibility. Barada Associates also performs background investigations for law enforcement and public safety personnel who work with the public on a daily basis.

When you hire Barada Associates for state or federal government pre-employment background checks, you can rest assured we’ll work closely with the agency and its human resources department to formulate a plan specific to its needs. We get to know your agency first, what it does, how many employees work there and what the job responsibilities are for the position you’re hiring for.

Whether you’re filling state or federal jobs, we know how busy government work is, and human resource departments simply don’t have enough time in the day to perform reliable employment screening on every candidate. Leave that job to the experts at Barada Associates. We’ve assisted hundreds of companies and government agencies across the United States with background checks. When you hire Barada, you’re hiring a company that has your best interests at heart.

What Does a Background Check Consist of?

A detailed background check for any government agency is mandatory considering the nature of the work they perform for their communities, whether it’s a local, state or federal job. Some of the areas we screen for include:

  • Court searches
  • Sex offender registry
  • Credit records
  • Verification of past employment and education
  • License and certification verification
  • Drug and alcohol screenings
  • Department of motor vehicle records

Local, State and Federal Criminal Background Checks

Because government employees work closely with the public and make decisions that affect their communities, knowing whether a candidate has a criminal record is essential. Our criminal history checks ensure you receive a rigorous criminal history report.

Barada Associates works with leading employment law experts to ensure the background investigation is conducted in a legal, responsible fashion and that the information we provide our clients is fully compliant with federal, state and local laws and regulations.

During a local, state or federal criminal background check, we look at at the following:

  • County-level criminal records
  • State and nationwide criminal records
  • Federal criminal courts records
  • Sex offender registries
  • Global homeland security searches

Our other services include:

Professional Skills & Cognitive Assessments

Professional skills and cognitive assessments can help you further identify during the hiring process whether candidates possess the temperament for certain positions and job responsibilities.

Drug & Alcohol Testing

It’s imperative to test that candidates for government jobs are not abusing or addicted to drugs and alcohol. Barada Associates’ substance-abuse screening services reduce workplace accidents by promoting a no-tolerance environment.

Academic Verification

Our academic verification services confirm your candidate’s academic credentials. This prevents you from hiring a candidate with inaccurate or misleading information.

Benefits of Employee Screening for a Government Position

The local, state and federal background check process is necessary to ensure a candidate is ethical and will demonstrate fairness and honesty in their government duties. Although a government job is a broad term that can relate to a number of positions, many government employees, including national security positions, have security clearance and access to sensitive information and need to be trusted with that responsibility.

Some of the duties of government employees may include:

  • Dealing with confidential information
  • Handling
  • Managing local or national security issues
  • Performing sensitive government work
  • Having security clearances
