For all those conducting criminal background checks in Wisconsin as part of their employment screening program, please be aware that the state has added fees to both it’s statewide criminal search and the country criminal records search for Portage County.

Portage, WI is in the process of changing their predominately used index to a new operating system. As a result, requests must be processed through the court clerks until this conversion is complete.

The fee will be an additional $5.00 per for both the statewide criminal and the Portage County Criminal Search.

Corra Group has expanded its services to offer corporate credit reports for businesses nationally and internationally. The corporate credit reports assist companies in evaluating the credit risks of new clients as well as older clients who had experienced tough times during the economic downturn.

“We are seeing the economy start to turn around,” said Gordon Basichis, Corra Group Co-Founder. “And with the economic rebound, more industries are ramping up as they are approached by new and existing clients in need of goods and services. But after a rocky couple of years, we are finding that many businesses are approaching new business much more cautiously than before the recession.

Man Gets Twenty Years for Workplace Violence

Workplace violence has been an ongoing problem.  There have been escalating incidents of workplace violence, ranging from psychological abuse to rape and murder.  In a recent article, I wrote about workplace violence.  The article was entitled, City of Albuquerque Requests Policy Changes for Workplace Violence.  We at Corra Group have reviewed any number of criminal records where ultimately we discovered the crime had been a violent act in the workplace.

Now here is yet another instance of workplace violence as  posted in an article from   One man stabbed and killed another in the workplace.   He was sentenced to twenty years for his action.   Interestingly enough, the man who did the  stabbing claimed the recent victim was bullying him at work.  A strong  and definitive form of retribution, I would think.  Also illegal and more than a tad over the top.

But then the frustration builds up–all the bullying, the abuse, until something snaps and there you be.   It was an impulse, nothing premeditated.   The aassilant snapped up a knife in the lunchroom and stabbed the other man.  The guilty man regretted his act and apologized to the court.   Didn’t really matter much to the man he killed.
