The History of PBSA
PBSA was founded in 2003 to promote ethics and standards for the employment screening industry. Its mission is “to advance excellence in the screening profession.” It is a non-profit trade association for companies that handle pre-employment screening, tenant screening, background screening and other credit reporting agencies.
True Hire became a member in 2009, meaning that we were pursuant of compliance with the Fair Credit Reporting Act and regulated by the FTC and CFPB as a consumer reporting agency.
Accreditation is more than just a membership.
Only the top 10 percent of background check companies in the world are accredited. PBSA accreditation validates that True Hire satisfies the highest standards of compliance, security and consumer protection among additional requirements. This distinction cannot be purchased, it must be earned.
True Hire went through a year-and-a-half-long process to prove that it met all of PBSA’s nearly 60 requirements and undergo a rigorous on-site audit to ensure that every facet of our business complies to the FCRA and is held to the highest standard of ethics and professionalism.
True Hire complies with all federal, state and local laws as they apply to your company or organization to protect you and your staff or volunteers. We have legal counsel that specializes in corporate and employment law to keep us up to date on the most current legislative changes.
