How It Works
Background Screenings assist in further validating the credentials of mannies who are being hired and may increase hiring opportunities.
Mannies.com does not pre-screen any candidate for hire. Background screening may be initiated by the service providers (mannies) or by the families seeking to hire mannies.
When a mannie orders his own background screening, his account profile page will indicate that a background screening has been completed and that he has passed the Basic level background screening. If the mannie does not pass this background screening, his profile will be removed from the website. Due to the tremendous limitations on the Basic level screening, we strongly recommend that families supplement the Basic level with a Premium level screening and DMV, if the families deem it necessary.
If the mannie has not ordered his own Basic screening, we strongly recommend that families run the Basic level, together with a Premium level and DMV search, where it is necessary.
While background checks are an important step in hiring a mannie, background screenings are not fool proof. It is important to note that background checks are not 100% accurate and may not disclose a candidate’s full criminal history. So, while background checks may be helpful and discover potential red flags, they are not always accurate and should not be relied upon to determine a candidate’s complete criminal history.
If a mannie provides incorrect information, the check may be run with inaccurate identifying data, and consequently impact the validity of the criminal results. In addition, there is human and electronic error that may result in inaccurate reporting.
