Employers of all sizes are recognizing the need to perform due diligence in the form of background investigations on both prospective and current employees.  Some employers genuinely are seeking to protect their assets, employees, customers and the general public from unsafe, dishonest, or dangerous employees.  Many other employers are primarily motivated out of concern they may face civil liability for the actions of their employees.  In most cases, these and other factors motivate employers to seek background investigations.
