Social Media Background Check

With social media screening emerging as a crucial trend for pre-employment background checks, it is no surprise that employers globally are recognizing its importance. According to a study by CareerBuilder in 2020, approximately 70% of employers used social media to screen candidates during the hiring process, highlighting the increasing relevance of online presence in job applications.

However, the utilization of social media screening is often marked by inconsistencies and potential legal pitfalls, particularly when unfavorable records are unearthed. Many employers find themselves accessing excessive, and often unrelated, data during this process, risking significant legal repercussions. Furthermore, the absence of a proven, systematic mechanism for screening compounds these challenges, creating an environment of uncertainty and potential bias.
