Specialty Services

In addition to criminal checks and verifications, Orange Tree offers a number of other services. Among these include international searches, professional references, and adverse action.

With Orange Tree's specialty screening service offerings, you can be confident that you're conducting a thorough screening process for every potential employee.  

Adverse Action

Our Adverse Action service builds compliance when a candidate fails to meet the employment criteria required to qualify for your open position. 

During implementation, we will work with you to configure your pre-adverse action and final adverse action letters. Once you are considering making an adverse hiring decision, simply notify us to initiate the Adverse Action letter service and we’ll begin sending the pre-adverse action letters along with copies of each applicant’s consumer report and all applicable “Summary of Rights” documents (federal and state).

After five days or longer (per your instruction), if the applicant has not disputed the contents of their consumer report, Orange Tree will mail the state-specific and final adverse action letter to the applicant along with all applicable “Summary of Rights” documents (federal and state). In the case of a candidate dispute, we will conduct all re-investigation required to further build compliance within your process.

For future reference, copies of each letter sent will be attached to the applicant profile on Orange Tree's ClientConnectTM portal.

International Screening Services

Orange Tree provides international screening services. We provide global solutions to make screening your candidates with international histories a success.  

International Criminal History

Orange Tree’s international criminal history service allows us to complete international criminal background checks in over 200 countries. The searches are conducted in the best available legal source of the requested country. The number of years searched varies by country as well as what the specific country defines as available to be reported.

International Education Verification

Orange Tree can verify your applicant’s attendance at an international institution. This search verifies the degree or diploma, and the dates of attendance or graduation at an international institution as stated by the applicant. The most common identifiers used to verify education history are:

  • Name used while attending
  • Graduation month and year
  • Dates of attendance
  • Type of degree
  • Date of birth
  • Copy of the degree or diploma

International Employment Verification

Orange Tree’s international employment verification service verifies the information provided by the applicant regarding their employment history. Typical areas that are verified include:

  • Dates of employment
  • Position and Title

Professional Reference Verification

Before making an employment decision, you may want to gather perspective from another party who has had professional experience with the candidate (e.g. former boss, colleague, etc.) via reference check.

For our professional reference verification service, Orange Tree will contact former co-workers, supervisors and colleagues that have been provided by the applicant. Our highest success rates occur via email.  If preferred, we can conduct the reference check via phone.

Additionally, Orange Tree offers clients a set of standard reference questions for their convenience. The number and questions as well as valid attempts can be configured and customized to your preference during implementation. As a note, Orange Tree defines a "valid attempt" as one where there is evidence to believe we have contacted the best possible source of the information.

Electronic I-9 and E-Verify

Ensuring your hiring process is compliant with state and federal employment regulations has never been more important. Our Electronic I-9 and E-Verify service helps you maintain compliance while managing your program as efficiently as possible.
