These services must be requested by the client and prices are available on request.  Depending on the checks and our agreement, they may be included in our previously quoted fees as a valued added service, unless itemized separately by name of check and priced on the invoice to avoid confusion.

An employer must satisfy themselves that the required checks have been completed or any exceptions agreed before making a written offer to one of the candidates BluZinc has introduced for hire.  They must also complete any checks themselves in order with local State laws for their company and job opening.

The time frame is from the time BluZinc submit the request for the check to completion and is an estimate.

Unless agreed in writing with signature from the client and a BluZinc Director, we accept no vicarious responsibility and our master terms and conidiations of business will be the default.
