Automation Where It Matters Most

Unlike other solutions, GoodHire’s Integrated Adverse Action takes into account 180+ state, county, and local ban-the-box laws based on your and your candidates’ locations. For companies with operations that span multiple locations, this feature simplifies a complex web of laws—and saves you time.

I really like the ability to do the pre-adverse action notices right from the system. And I also like that it allows the candidates to explain any criminal records that might show up so I may ask follow-up questions.

GoodHire has helped our organization become compliant with laws related to background screening. All forms and materials are created and the use is mapped out for us.
