Levels of Service

Managed Adjudication

Your organization’s adjudication guidelines are provided to HireRight and are maintained in your account. Background screening without discrepancies are automatically identified as ‘clear,’ meeting your adjudication guidelines, and are ‘complete’ within your workflow. Results with discrepancies are directed to a HireRight adjudicator who reviews the completed background screening report against your guidelines. Reports that satisfy your guidelines are identified as ‘meets company standards’. All others are identified as ‘pending’, so you can perform an individualized review to determine whether or not the candidate meets your organization’s hiring guidelines.

Self Adjudication

You manage the adjudication workflow for background checks with discrepancies.  Background screening results without discrepancies are automatically identified as ‘clear,’ meeting your adjudication guidelines, and are ‘complete’ within your workflow.

You can choose to have HireRight maintain a copy of your organization’s current adjudication guidelines that is accessible via your HireRight account for easy reference by those in your organization who are evaluating the background screening reports.
