Synopsis

References from former employers are likely to be more valuable than personal references and can help avoid negligent hiring claims.

 

Description

Part of hiring process is checking the background of prospective employees who you are seriously considering for your open position. Every background check should include checking with an applicant's  former employers and other professional and personal references. You don't necessarily want to check every applicant's references but any candidate who is in the running beyond the early stages of the hiring process should have a reference check which is thoroughly documented. Don't make a job offer until you've  completed your reference checking.

Former employers are in a good position to tell you about an applicant's work history. At the very least you  should be able to verify the factual, objective information the applicant gave you.
