Background checks must be streamlined in order to gather exactly the information you are looking for. This protects you as the employer but it also protects the applicant's privacy rights.
Employers are not allowed to hold certain knowledge about information against prospective employees. It can be very difficult not to discriminate, especially when there are other candidates and it is easier to hire another employee. When you run background checks the best way to avoid knowing information you shouldn't know is by carefully streamlining these verification checks. This allows for you not to learn things you wish you didn't know that you are not allowed to hold against the employee anyway and to give a fair chance for the employee to get the job.
When you streamline your background checks you should look for only relevant information and only what you need to know. You might have someone applying for a job that will be driving company vehicles. In this case you might want to ensure they have never been arrested for car theft and you might want to run a motor vehicle record to verify they are not reckless and they have enough points on their license to drive for your company. A motor vehicle record would be important because your insurance company may charge you through the rood for a driver with a poor driving record.
Streamlining background checks is important unless you are running them for a personal reason and you want as much information as possible on a person. If you are running verification for employment purposes then you need to only gather the information you need that pertains to the position they will be working.
