Complete the selected form by selecting a background screening package and entering all required information.

Move the candidate to the "Reference check" stage to initiate the background screening. 


The background screening form must be completed before the Opportunity advances to the “Reference check” stage 


Currently, only one background screening can be ordered per applicant. If you need an additional screening ordered for an applicant or if the original order details were incorrect, please reach out to the Crimcheck integrations team at integrations@crimcheck.com.

Receiving Background Screening Results

As the background screening is processed in Crimcheck’s system, status updates will be posted to Lever as tags.
