“Operational compliance is key to ShieldHub building trusted business networks,” stated Russell, EVP Operations and Compliance. “As the demand for contract labor continues to grow, it is inevitable that the demand for standardized contractor screening and continual monitoring will increase to ensure workforce safety.  ShieldHub’s goal isn’t just to make background data useful but do it in a way that enables our clients to manage risk and maintain regulatory compliance.”

This includes working with product and development to ensure that new background check products and services support and maintain regulatory compliance.

ShieldHub is a Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) compliant criminal background-monitoring technology solution that enables a risk composite ShieldScoreTM indicator for managing risk while engaging independent contractors. Unlike periodic background checks, ShieldHub includes continuous 24/7 monitoring and alerts when an independent contractor is out of compliance with the client’s risk policy. ShieldHub assigns each user a unique anonymized ShieldIDTM (ABC#) that provides partners with evidence of risk compliance and assurance to independent contractors they have control of limiting the sharing of sensitive personal information with multiple clients or partners. Additionally, since the ShieldIDTM number is owned by the individual, for the first-time independent contractors have complete portability to share their score to any ShieldHub partner while avoiding the redundant and costly nature of multiple background checks.
