Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) enforces federal laws against employment. This permits the employer to do a background check before hiring an employee.
Certain employers do a background check before deciding on whether to hire you, whether you can keep your job. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) puts into effect a federal law which regulates background reports for employment, and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) enforces federal laws against employment discrimination. An employer might ask for all possible sorts of background information, during the recruitment process, including your employment history, criminal record, education, financial history, medical history, or use of online social media.
