When to Use

Employers and landlords have a responsibility to create a safe and secure environment for their employees, tenants, and visitors. Omnidelve criminal background checks can be a valuable tool in helping to achieve this goal.


Employers should consider using Omnidelve criminal background checks when hiring new employees, especially for positions that involve working with children or vulnerable adults, handling money, or driving company vehicles. Background checks can help to identify potential risks and liabilities, and can also help to deter theft and other criminal activity.


Landlords should consider using Omnidelve criminal background checks when screening potential tenants. Background checks can help to identify individuals who have a history of violence, property damage, or drug use. Landlords can use this information to make informed decisions about who to rent to, and can also help to protect their property and other tenants.

Considerations for Employers and Landlords

When using Omnidelve criminal background checks, employers and landlords should be aware of the following:

  • The Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) requires employers and landlords to obtain consent from applicants before running a background check.

  • Employers and landlords must provide applicants with a copy of the background check report and an opportunity to dispute any inaccuracies.

  • Employers and landlords should not use background check information to discriminate against applicants on the basis of race, ethnicity, religion, national origin, sex, age, disability, or genetic information.

What is Revealed

State Criminal Database Search**

Conduct a state criminal database search for full visibility into an individual’s crimes within that state. Each state search also searches the State Sex Offender Registry and the Security Watchlist.

County Criminal Records Search*

County criminal searches provide information on all offenses committed within the limits of the county searched. They contain the most up to date information, making them the most powerful search users can use to obtain the facts on the criminal cases being researched.  Usually, all levels of crimes, regardless of severity (infractions, minor offenses, misdemeanors, felony's etc.), show in county searches including pending cases that may not yet have been fully adjudicated.

National Criminal Database Search*

Search the National Criminal Database to understand an individual’s potential risk. Add-on additional sources and searches to dive deeper into a person’s risk profile, including the National Sex Offender Registry Search*, Security Watchlist Search*, Aliases, and an Address History Trace*.

National Sex Offender Registry Search

Run a search across State Sex Offender Registries, Tribal Sources, Violent, Murder, and Drug Offender Registries, and more to get a sense of an individual’s risk.

Security Watchlist Search

Access and search government agencies’ watchlists, including OFAC, SAM.Gov, and dozens of other sources for further insight into an individual.

Federal Criminal Records Search

A federal criminal records search provides information on criminal violations enforced by the United States government that have been adjudicated in federal district courts (for example, FBI, U.S. Marshals, ATF, DEA, etc.) These cases are usually initiated through the U.S. Attorney's office.  Since violations of federal law are adjudicated in the federal courts, these cases will not show in county or state criminal searches.
