Is it necessary to have background verification for employees who have worked for more then six months in the organization? their employment has already been confirmed. what action should we take in case we find out that someone has faked their details?
From India, Bangalore
As a process in hiring employees, a thorough background check should be conducted and done within the first three months of their probationary employment, and if everything of their details are true and they don't have bad record then it means that they can be considered to be given a confirmed employment which will come after the six months.

Hi Seema,
As such backround check doesnt happen in all the organization, but majorly in most of the MNC's there is a background check process that happens which is useful. If the employee has faked the details and cleared the HR recruitment process there are policies in the organization which are entilited to withdraw his process with the organization and he could be terminated of his services from the organization.
Let me know if this helps !!

In the USA, some occupations require that everyone get a background check not matter how long they have worked the company. Generally it is anyone that is in a position of trust and authority over children, disabled, or dependent people. That includes positions such as teachers, health care, nannies, daycare providers, coaches, policemen, firemen, etc.

By law, all other employers can be background checked at any time. However, if you fire them because of something you learned from the background check, then you must tell them what it was. It is normal practice to fire employees that lied on their resume or job application, but it is up the company.

Can my boss do a Background Check on me <link updated to site home> ( Search On Cite | Search On Google ) without my permission?

Please let me know how background check happens in India for a candidate who has previously worked for a small organization, which doesn't maintain record of their previous employees and which may not have any website also.
The third party company, which is doing the background check, how do they contact the organization and when they contact whom they ask for the information when there is no HR in the small organization.
