Organizations and businesses in the healthcare, medical and pharmaceutical industries must ensure that their doctors, dentists, nurses, psychologists, veterinarians, and laboratory technologists have the valid license required to practice their specific profession. As an employer, you’re bound by both business practice and regulatory compliance to confirm your job candidates’ licensure prior to placement.
SimpliVerified can help you verify professional licenses with the applicable licensing board. This procedure will confirm important information that will prove the validity of the candidates’ disclosed license details, including:
- type of license
- license number
- date of certification
- expiration date
- license status
- renewal date.
The Professional License Verification can also confirm whether there are disciplinary actions and sanctions faced by the candidate. It also validates if the license is valid and current.
A professional license check is important before onboarding the candidate because the licenses may be forged. There’s also a risk of exposure to lawsuits, penalties and liabilities if you don’t check the candidate’s license with the state.
In addition, license verification is not something you can DIY with the state you’re in. It’s best to partner with a professional background screening company to ensure that aside from the state board/agency from which the candidate’s license was issued, other jurisdictions in which he/she has previously resided are also checked because:
- Every state has different documentation and reporting requirements; and
- Reporting of disbarments and criminal convictions are simply voluntary in some states.
