Businesses have a responsibility to provide a safe workplace by hiring the most qualified person.
The courts are beginning to see litigation against businesses for improper hiring practices when an employee causes harm at work.
Negligent hiring may be found if a hiring decision made by an employer results in an employee who injures or harms a customer, co-worker, or any individual who comes into contact with the employee. For example, a victim of harassment in the workplace may have a cause of action for negligent hiring on the part of her employer if they can show that the employer was aware of the harasser’s termination from a previous position for the same behaviour.
SureHire provides consultation services on a wide range of pre-employment background checks. The information provided is easy to read, accurate, timely, and delivered to the employer using the same system used for the occupational testing results.

Criminal Record Check:
Fast, convenient, and supplied through a police vendor. Protect your company, your employees, and your customers! This Nationwide search of the CPIC database will provide employers with information concerning criminal convictions and charges for which a candidate has not been pardoned within a 24 hour window.
Premium Criminal Record Check:
In addition to a criminal record check, this service will include an additional search based on information related to any of the following:
- outstanding police entries, such as charges or warrants, judicial orders, peace bonds, probation, prohibition and absolute and conditional discharges
- negative police contracts including but not limited to theft, sex offences, and violent, harmful, or threatening behavior.
Why have a Background Check?
A thorough background check can save an organization an enormous amount of grief and expense down the road. Completing a background check on potential candidates accelerates the recruiting process and dramatically improves the quality of information that is necessary to make well-informed hiring decisions.
These benefits will significantly reduce expenses associated with turnover and re-training – not to mention the damage that a ‘bad hire’ can inflict on the reputation of the company and its customers.
What is the difference between basic and premium background checks?
A basic background check is a criminal check supplied through our police vendor. It will provide information concerning criminal convictions and charges for which a candidate has not been pardoned.
A premium check includes additional information in regards to outstanding police entries (charges or warrants), judicial orders, peace bonds, probation, negative police contracts including but not limited to theft, sex offences, and violent, harmful, or threatening behavior.
What is the turnaround time frame for the results?
Once all paperwork and photocopies of the ID have been completed, we will have a result notification to you within 24 – 48 hours.
