Background Check Policy

JobJar is empowering customers to make smarter, faster, safer hiring decisions through advanced technology, and transparency of the Skilled Doers enrolled in the platform.


JobJar has partnered with Global Background Screening(GBS) to accelerate the Criminal Record Checks and simplify the procedure to our independent Skilled Doers. Although Skilled Doers can submit their own background checks, JobJar encourages Skilled Doers to use the all-in-one solution from GBS. 


GBS keeps abreast of the issues and trends in our industry with anticipation of future best practices. GBS services comply with state employment laws and the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA).


We strongly believe in second chances and offering those with minor offences to get another chance to demonstrate their willingness to succeed in their career as professionals. JobJar will clear a Skilled Doer when ONE of the following criteria are met:

1. The candidate has a clear record (no convictions) since they turned 18 years old to the moment the Skilled Doer is verified.

2. The candidate has not been convicted or declared guilty of any of the following offences:

a. Terrorism

b. Weapon

c. Sexual

d. Homicide


e. Property

JobJar reserves the right to refuse to clear a background check when the conviction was within the past 2 years and/or to the discretion of JobJar.
