As more and more people find themselves with less and less time available to do everyday chores, domestic services has increasingly become extremely profitable. However, with the rise in domestic services availability, it is important to ensure that anyone hired has creditable references.
Mark Rosell of The Mang Group points to a survey of insurance companies which revealed that over 40 percent of theft claims were the result of domestic cleaning services. While many domestic service agencies carry insurance to handle any claims, it would be less expensive to simply make sure that every potential employee passes a background check.
In order to make sure that anyone offering domestic services is trustworthy and reliable, it is wise to conduct a thorough comprehensive background search. This search includes, but is not limited to:
- Criminal records
- Sex Offender records
- Credit reports
- Bankruptcy searches
- Tax liens
- Civil proceedings
- Driving records
- Employment history
Conducting a preliminary background search before hiring someone to work as a domestic service provider is a simple, but effective way of preventing costly losses from occurring. Taking the time to make certain job applicants have nothing in his or her past that might cause problems in the future is the best way to forestall having to deal with potential unpleasant circumstances.
