Currently there are no regulations of what constitutes a "background check" for on-demand companies worker screening process.
Just because the website says workers are "background checked" doesn't mean you are safe. Gig Bigwig contacted over 50 large on-demand companies and found background screening practices ranged drastically. One popular on-demand company said "background check" means the worker answered their phone. When asked if they do a criminal screening they replied, "No, we leave that up to you." Of the 50 companies contacted, not one did a monthly re-screening of the applicant to verify recent convictions.
