Comments For Context lets candidates see their FCRA-compliant background checks the way employers will and enter comments directly on the results. These comments stay with the candidates’ results, so any employer who checks that candidate’s background through GoodHire will see a more complete picture.

GoodHire gives you a simple, automated way to request context around records that’s simply part of the process, like requesting e-consent to run the check in the first place. And our intuitive interface makes it easy for candidates to check that the record is accurate, add context if it is, or dispute it if it’s wrong.

Candidates can choose to share their results with employers who aren’t using GoodHire as their employment screening provider. Comments for Context are designed for portability because GoodHire believes that context is a crucial component of fair chance hiring practices for everyone, not just our customers.

Without context, criminal records tell only part of the story – that a conviction occurred. The records say nothing about why or what has happened since. Without that context, employers run the risk of excluding otherwise qualified candidates.

Excluding people with criminal records from consideration could attract unwanted attention from the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), which has strengthened its focus on the disparate impact of hiring policies on protected classes.

Candidates can add context at any time – when they run their own personal background check with GoodHire or when an employer asks the candidate to provide context for records returned.
