The Enterprise Solution for Screening Your Contractor Workforce

In today’s economy, safeguarding your customers from contractor risk is a top priority. That’s why it has become essential to ensure comprehensive 100% background check compliance across your entire independent contractor network.

ShieldHub streamlines workforce screening by providing your independent contractors with a single source to purchase a comprehensive background check and composite risk score as part of their work engagement. Combined with the included continuous monitoring, ShieldHub enterprise customers have the peace of mind that their independent contractor workforce remains compliant whether in the office, on assignment, or at the customer’s home.

How ShieldHub Works

ShieldHub starts when you invite the independent contractor to your trusted network. They will be prompted to purchase an FCRA compliant criminal background check from an accredited Consumer Reporting Agency (CRA) partner.

The background data is analyzed and standardized to calculate the ShieldScoreSM (IC Score) that represents the associated background risk of the contractor.

Settle your Score with ShieldHub

The Consumer Reporting Agency (CRA) adjudicates the report using ShieldHub’s proprietary standardization algorithms to create a composite ShieldScoreTM (IC Score) that communicates safety while keeping the details of your background check report private. ShieldScoreTM corresponds to one of five levels of compliance:

ShieldHub provides risk scoring standardization for the basis of the ShieldScore™ and is not responsible for the engagement acceptance criteria set by the Client’s Policies. ShieldScore™ considers both the severity and count of criminal convictions in the scope of the background check when determining a composite score. The visual matrix representation identifies thresholds for severity of criminal convictions, total of convictions allowable per level of scoring, is for informational purposes, and is not inclusive of every category or type of crime. IC01+ designation will be available to ShieldIDs issued or updated beginning April 2, 2024.
