We get it: dealing with employee background checks can be overwhelming and time consuming. That's why PDA Investigations is dedicated to making the lives of HR professionals and business owners easier.
When it comes to hiring smart, background checks are a crucial step in ensuring that you are making the best possible choices for your organization. They provide valuable information about a candidate's employment history, criminal record, education, and more. This information provided in a background screening report helps you make informed decisions and protect your company's reputation.

We pride ourselves on our commitment to customer service and strive to make the process as easy and headache-free as possible.

We know that every business is unique and we offer totally customizable pre-employment screening packages and a range of services to ensure that you get exactly what you need to make informed hiring decisions.
County Criminal History Searches locate the most detailed and up to date criminal records you can get. Records are retrieved by our researchers directly from the county courthouse. If your applicant has a reportable offense on their record, we'll find it.
Searching for applicants in the National Criminal Database is a great tool for finding offenses an applicant may have committed outside of where they live or have lived. If any potential hits are found we use our researcher skills to narrow down the list and, if necessary, we run a county search based off the National results to ensure you are getting the most accurate and up to date information. That way you can feel confident you are making informed hiring decisions.
A federal criminal history search is a great add-on to any criminal history screening package. These are ideal for higher level positions and search records to find out if your applicant has been tried in a federal court. These records often contain federal drug crimes, identity theft, embezzlement, and other financial crimes.
Our national search scrubs a criminal records database compiled from violent and sex offender registries from all fifty states and the District of Columbia. We can also run state specific offender registry searches.
Credit reports in tenant screening are common but they are becoming more and more prevalent in employment screening as well. They show if an applicant is in serious debt or if they are in collections. If you're hiring for a position that might have access to cash or sensitive financial information you will want to know about any financial issues the applicant may have. Employment reports are unscored and, therefore, soft hits on an applicant's credit report.
Drug free workplace? There's only one way to be sure. We offer 5panel and 10panel tests and can customize everything in between. We also offer a rapid 5panel test that returns negative results in as little as 15 minutes. Scheduling is easy and we are partnered with Alere, Quest, and LabCorp so there is always a testing location close by.
Any time your employees are required to get behind the wheel as part of their job reliable motor vehicle reports are vital. We find moving violations, suspensions, accidents, and can verify that an applicant's license is real and valid.
The Global Terrorist Watch List Search looks at the FBI's Most Wanted Terrorists, the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) watch list, and runs your applicant through the INTERPOL Most Wanted database. The OFAC list includes known terrorists, terrorist supporters, international narcotics traffickers, and those engaged in activities related to the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction.
Employment and education verifications ensure an applicant’s credentials are not fabricated or exaggerated. We can verify place of employment and position as well as their educational background and degree(s) earned. We can also verify professional licenses of applicants. These searches are crucial for positions where experience, education, and certifications are necessary for employees to perform at a high level.
Social Security Number traces and verifications provide a detailed address history, AKAs, and help confirm an applicant's SSN is a legitimate number and gives the date and location it was issued. Address histories help us determine where an applicant may have lived and what counties need to be searched for criminal records.
A vital search in the healthcare field, the OIG exclusions database shows those who have been convicted of fraud, patient abuse, and even identity theft.
Upper and lower civil court searches are important for those businesses hiring someone who may handle cash or deal with sensitive information. An applicant who is involved in a lawsuit, divorce, or paternity suit may be a risky choice. Searching these civil records can help uncover issues that could cause problems right away or down the road.
In the U.S. it's imperative that companies verify that their employees are authorized to work in this country. We can provide a portal right within your background screening account where you can enter in employee I-9 information and submit to E-Verify. This way you can do everything digitally and have an applicant's background check and I-9 Authorization in one place. The dashboard keeps track of your active employees and even alerts you when someone is due for re verification.
