Enhanced Background Checks®

Quickly and thoroughly screen with enhanced background checks software to ensure candidates don't pose a business risk


To help you gain a competitive edge, Paycom’s employee background check software delivers screening results quickly. This allows you to make the most informed hiring decisions in a timely manner so top talent doesn’t fall through the cracks.

The process is streamlined for candidates, HR professionals, recruiters and hiring managers alike. The check runs using applicant-entered information. Upon passing, a candidate can be hired in a click. Their information populates systemwide, eliminating data reentry so you can focus elsewhere.

As a member of the Professional Background Screening Association, we can help you maintain compliance with the federal Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA). It requires employers to get screening consent, as well as to provide adverse action notifications and clear disclosure to applicants.

In keeping with our unparalleled dedication to data security, Paycom is committed to making sure background information is secure and accessible only to authorized users, so you have peace of mind, knowing your sensitive information is safe.

Customizable employment screening software packages include

  • national criminal scan
  • county criminal search
  • sex offender registry
  • education verification
  • employment verification
  • drug testing and health services (DOT and non-DOT options)
  • and more
