On average, how much time will PeopleFacts require in order to complete an Employment Background check?

The amount of time required to complete Employment Background checks can vary, however, criminal record searches average between 24 to 48 hours. In addition, it’s important to note that some county criminal searches may require more time—if they require a clerk search.

National criminal searches are, however, reported instantly if clear—and within 24 hours if there is a possible name match that requires review by our PeopleFacts researchers.
