    Default Do Warrants Show on Pre-Employment Background Checks

    My question involves a background check in the State of: Missouri

    Do warrarnts show up on pre-employment background checks? Situation: Fiance has a warrent for back child support; which is crazy because they already withdraw from his paycheck the child support money. Also, the same month they started taking the money out was the same month the warrant was issued.

    YES - if the employer is using a 1/2 way decent screening process, they will see the arrest warrant.

    One more time.

    What will and will not show on any given background check, depends entirely on how thorough a check is run. Not all background checks are created equal.

    CAN it show? Yes.

    WILL it show? Only someone who knows how deep a check will be run, can answer that.

    Correction...a warrant does not show up on your background check. What does show up is the fact that the issue has not been conluded. Many employers ask, "Do you have any charges pending?". In this case, if you answer incorrectly, you are not telling the truth. In an employers mind, that is worse than a misdemeaner offense.
    How do I know? I spent 12 years wandering the planet with a misdemeaner warrant. The only time it showed up was when I was pulled over, or walked through the international terminal. In these instances, I was simply pulled to the side until the state the warrant was from decided they were to cheap to extradite. DON"T TRY THIS WITH CHILD SUPPORT WARRANTS, they will grab you at the airport!!!

    Just because you only had it show up in certain circumstances does not mean that the same will be the case with everyone in all cases.

    Once more. There is NO such thing as a standard pre-employment check that always shows exactly the same time. What will show depends ENTIRELY on what is and is not asked for. There are as many different ways a check can come out as there are employers.
