Why do I need employee background screening?

Employers are required to check new hires are eligible to work in the UK, that their employment history is legitimate and that there is nothing to indicate that they could pose a threat to their brand, customers and reputation. Employees may also find themselves handling credit and debit card data or cash, and employers need to adhere to Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS).

In sectors such as gaming, regulators stipulate that screening is required for roles within casinos such as dealers, cashiers and supervisors.
