Employee Background Verification – Quarterly Discrepancy Statistics (Q1/2019)

Here are the high level quarterly discrepancy statistics covering the months of April’19, May’19 and June’19.

We observed that 2% of the overall number of cases had discrepancies (could be major or minor).

Next, let us look at the breakup of the discrepancies to identify further which types of components (checks) were the source of these discrepancies. These discrepancies were in Employment verification (61% of the total discrepancy), Address verification (accounting for 22.2% of the total discrepancy), Reference verification (accounting for 5.6 of the total discrepancy) and Education verification (accounting for 11.1% of the total discrepancy).

From the above it’s clearly evident that the major concern areas are employment verification, education verification, reference checks and address check. These are the four checks employers should focus on.
