Domestic Help Verification

Domestic Help Verification / Home Staff Background Check

Due to a steep rise in cases of crime involving domestic helps, domestic help verification is gaining importance. Verification of prospective workers like servant, maid, nanny, gardener, and guard is an important tool for reducing the risk of a bad hire that could affect you or your family adversely as these people work in close proximity to your family.

Here are five top tips for domestic help verification:

  • If your town police offer domestic help verification service, submit the application form at your local police station. This is by far the best thing you can do.
  • Verify the current and permanent address and ID proofs of your domestic help and retain a photocopy for your records.
  • Visit the current address and confirm the residence. Ask the local neighbours too.
  • Ask for previous employer references even if the domestic help is coming through word of mouth referral or through a domestic help agency. Call the previous employers and ask questions to confirm and learn more.
  • Retain a current photograph of the domestic help.

These steps present partial deterrence against any future criminal intentions but are time consuming. JantaKhoj provides background check services for the staff you may hire at your home. You have the option to perform the following checks before you hire someone:
