How Does The Process Work?

Credit information is highly sensitive. In order to protect candidate and employee privacy, businesses must meet various legal requirements in order to purchase a credit check. Here’s how the credentialing process works:

How Much Do They Cost?

3-5 business days

The verification process generally takes 3-5 days. During this one-time credentialing process, a certified site inspector will verify your business’s legitimacy. Once the verification is complete, you can add employment credit checks to your GoodHire reports right away.

$14.99 each

If an on-site inspection is required to verify that your business is eligible to run employment credit checks, you’ll pay a one-time fee of $74.99. After that, you can add credit checks to any purchased GoodHire report package for $14.99 each.

Protect Your Company

Be sure to consult legal counsel before purchasing any credit reports to ensure state and federal legal compliance. Several states (including CA, CO, CT, DE, HI, IL MD, NV, OR, VT and WA) and cities (including New York and Chicago) have restrictions on how employers can use credit reports in hiring.
