DISCLAIMER: This help article is provided to explain how to use the Checkr integration with Comeet. This should not be used and/or considered as legal advice. You should contact your attorney to seek legal advice with respect to performing background checks and the required procedures following receipt of background check reports.
Comeet's integration with Checkr makes it simple to run background checks as part of your hiring workflow.
Add the background check step to your position workflow and run background checks directly from the candidate's workflow.
When the background check report is ready, a link to the report will be available from the candidate's evaluation in Comeet.
If the report is returned as "Clear" then the candidate is advanced to the next step in the workflow.
If the report is returned with reportable results then a "Proceed with candidate?" step will be created and assigned to the teammate/s assigned to the background check.
All changes to the status of the background check in Checkr are shown on the candidate's profile.
1. Set up your Checkr account
Get started using Checkr by setting up your account.
In Comeet, navigate to the company's Settings and go to the Integrations page.
Find Checkr under the Assessment tools section.
Click Integrate and then click Connect Your Checkr Account.
If you already have a Checkr account then sign in to your account. Otherwise click Set Up A Checkr Account, fill in the necessary information on the next two steps (you will need your EIN and a payment account) and submit.
Go back to the Checkr integration section in Comeet and click Activate.
NOTE: If you signed up for a new Checkr account, Checkr will review your company's details to credential your new account. You will receive an email when this is complete. Until the account is credentialed, you will be able to set up your hiring process by adding Checkr steps to your workflows but you will not be able to run background checks with candidates.
2. Add a background check step
Once your Checkr account is credentialed and integrated you can add background checks to your workflow.
Navigate to the position that you are hiring for and select the Workflow tab.
Click the + (plus icon) to add a new step.
Change the step type to Checkr.
Select the background check package that you would like to run for this position. This package will be the position's default and can later be changed on a candidate basis. If you would like to add additional packages – such as drug screening, employment verification, etc. – tell the Checkr team which packages you'd to add using this form.
3. Run a background check
When a candidate reaches the Checkr step, you can run the background check directly from the candidate's workflow.
On the Checkr step in the candidate's workflow, select a background check package (or keep the position's default) and click Start.
The candidate will receive an invitation from Checkr to begin their background check. They have 7 days by default to complete the authorization process. This process includes all required authorizations and disclosures based on their location.
When the candidate completes the authorization in Checkr, the background check status will be updated on the candidate's profile in Comeet.
Once the background check is complete, the Checkr step in the candidate's workflow will be marked as complete.
To see the full report go to the Evaluation tab and under the Checkr step click View as a user on Checkr.
The background check step will have one of the following recommendations:
PASSED - No reportable results were found. The candidate will be advanced to the next step in the workflow.
REVIEW - Reportable results were found. A "Proceed with candidate?" step will be created and assigned to the teammate/s assigned to the background check. When this happens, it is recommended to review the report and handle adjudication on Checkr to ensure compliance with the EEOC regulation.
