LexisNexis® Launches Record Watch, an Automated Re-screening Solution

April 20, 2011 — Helps employers better manage risk by alerting them to changes in an employee’s background check

New York, NY—LexisNexis® Screening Solutions, a leading global background screening provider, announces the launch of LexisNexis® Record Watch—a powerful, post-hire screening tool that automatically performs recurring background checks on employees and alerts employers about changes to an employee’s pre-hire status. By revealing new background information that could pose a variety of threats to the organization, Record Watch helps employers reduce the risk of workplace theft, fraud and violence, and mitigate potential liabilities associated with negligent retention.

“Whether a background issue is discovered pre-hire or post-hire, risk is risk, and these days anything employers can do to lower their employee-related risk is a worthwhile initiative,” said Chris Glencross. “Record Watch runs so seamlessly behind the scenes that you can easily forget you have it until you get an alert that new background information was detected.”

Record Watch works by automatically re-screening employees on a regularly scheduled basis using select database searches and preemptively notifying the employer if new records are identified. Customized Record Watch screening models are designed with assistance from a LexisNexis® associate to meet specific business concerns.

To help employers easily tailor a solution that meets their specific business needs, Record Watch offers supreme flexibility with:

  • Multiple search options, including the industry-leading LexisNexis® National Criminal File search, LexisNexis National Criminal File PLUS, LexisNexis Global Sanctions search and Office of Inspector General, General Services Administration (OIG GSA) search.
  • User-friendly controls that allow employers to instantly enroll and un-enroll employees and pre-set re-screening frequency based on risk tolerance and need.
  • Pre-set screening schedules created by the employer. No human intervention is needed, and employers are only notified about new records.
  • Multiple pricing options based on estimated screening volume and annual employee turnover rate.
