As with our other Risk Management offerings, we partner with 3rd party providers to offer you additional services that you may not have access to on your own. For additional information about any of our partner programs detailed below, please contact Risk Control or call (916) 850-7300.
The EIA has partnered with Plexus Global to provide background check services.
Employers have a duty to ensure prospective employees will not pose a risk to the public, other agency employees, or the agency. Comprehensive background checks are a necessary and important pre-employment best practice that will help members meet this obligation.
Using a consumer reporting agency, like Plexus Global, to conduct background checks ensures compliance with requirements for safeguarding the confidentiality of information obtained. Limiting employees’ involvement reduces the member’s exposure and maintains the confidentiality of the information obtained in the background check process.
