Why conduct an identity check?

Identity checks ensure the accuracy and integrity of the people you're hiring. ID verify background checks confirm the identity of future candidates to protect your business from potential fraud or misrepresentation. ID checks are used alongside other background checks such as criminal and UK right-to-work checks.
