    Please let me know how background check happens in India for a candidate who has previously worked for a small organization, which doesn't maintain record of their previous employees and which may not have any website also.

    The third party company, which is doing the background check, how do they contact the organization and when they contact whom they ask for the information when there is no HR in the small organization.

    It would depend on what information you need from the previous employer.

    Usually as a recruiter I would need following details of a candidate from his background check:

    1. His tenure
    2. His Pay scale
    3. If he has mention any achievements in his previous job, get it verified
    4. Their recommendation.

    Many times it has been observed that recommendations can be falsified depending on the personal level interaction and relation they shared but rest all can be verified from the copy of appointment and confirmation or appraisal letters that company might have a track of. Sure many SMEs do not keep files or excel for employees but they're small enough to know their employees for considerable period.

    You can contact the previous owner and talk to him. Not just that also ask the applicant to provide names & numbers of his colleagues to ask them their views.

    Hope it helped.
