Don't Worry. Screen Happy!

Compliance Is Not An Option

Hundreds of lawsuits have been brought against companies with improper screening policies, costing them many millions of dollars.

It’s critical you stay up to date with the latest laws and regulations, as well as best practices in general. That’s why you’ll get a background screening program that’s always compliant, no matter what your industry regulations are.

“Set It And Forget It” Doesn’t Work For Compliance

We continually monitor laws and regulations, as well as trends in the industry. We’ll make changes to your screening program as necessary to make sure we minimize your risk. This is all part of our offering, available at no extra cost to you.

The Industry's Only Trusted Advisor Program

EBI’s one-of-a-kind Trusted Advisor program allows you to call at any time and speak with one of our compliance experts to answer questions or talk you through your concerns. If we can’t answer your questions, we have partnered with some of the best FCRA attorneys in the country.
