Over the years, we here at EmployeeScreenIQ have seen our fair share of pre-employment background check deceptions from job applicants, and we’re guessing you have, too (our personal favorite is the candidate who faked her own death to avoid criminal prosecution). However, did you spot the deception immediately or find out after the fact?

Our latest article, “Job Applicants Do the Darndest Things: How HR Can Spot Candidates Who Game the System,” shows you the top ten ways your applicants are trying to pull a fast one when it comes to employment background checks– and how human oversight, even in this age of technology, can make all the difference. You’ll learn how to debunk popular employee background check maneuvers designed to mislead including:

  • “Misremembered facts” communicated to background screening companies
  • Employers who don’t exist (think Seinfeld and Vandelay Industries!)
  • Delayed drug tests
  • And more!
