Home office & equipment setup

Before you begin the application process, you’ll want to think about your home office and ensure it’s properly equipped to launch your new business. Your home office should be a quiet, distraction-free space where you can work comfortably, without a lot of background noise like children, barking dogs, traffic, doorbells, TVs and radios.

You’ll also want to review the technology requirements to be sure your computer hardware and specifications will fully support the needs of the clients your new business will be servicing.

Why do I have to pay for my background check?

Process and Timeline

Once you complete your application, you’ll be asked to submit your payment and information for the background and credit check via our secure third-party vendor, Checkr. In general, it takes 2-5 business days, although sometimes it may take longer. You’ll receive a copy of the report by email as soon as it’s complete. Checkr will forward the same report to Liveops, there’s no need to send us your copy.


Background and Credit Check: Reasons why someone might fail

Based on our criteria for independent contractor Agents, you may not qualify if your results reveal any of the following:

  • Two or more civil judgments/tax liens (excluding divorce or dissolution of marriage) within the past five years.
  • Two or more bankruptcies.
  • Debt that is past due or in collections totaling more than $10,000 (excluding home mortgage foreclosure).
  • Freeze or fraud alert on your credit file – it will need to be removed before you place the order.

Important: A low credit rating will not automatically disqualify an applicant.


Criminal History: Reason why someone might fail

The criminal history check includes the county, state, and/or federal level. Based on our criteria for independent contractor Agents, you may not qualify if your check reveals any of the following:

  • Felony records: Dispositions of guilty, convicted, no contest/nolo contendere, adjudication withheld/deferred adjudication/probation before judgment (if currently under probation), pending, or outstanding warrant.
  • Misdemeanor records: Three or more vehicular records with DUI, reckless driving or hit/run, or five or more total misdemeanors.
  • Any records involving theft, fraud, dishonesty, breach of trust, arson, or violent crimes with dispositions of guilty, convicted, no contest/nolo contendere, adjudication withheld/deferred adjudication/probation before judgment (if currently under probation), pending, or outstanding warrant.

Liveops contracts with agents in many different states, counties, and jurisdictions.  Background & Credit Checks are conducted in accordance with applicable laws & regulations within these states, counties, and jurisdictions and may include reporting at the local, state and national government level, from regulatory and administrative bodies, or as a result of compliance checks in accordance with federal government minimum requirements.

For USB Headset Connectivity

  • A corded, USB headset that is compatible with your computer.
  • For USB headset programs, the client(s) will route calls directly to your computer using provided software.

For Digital Phone Connectivity

Connecting through your local Internet Service Provider (ISP) will be the quickest, most affordable way to set up your phone line service. This process is as simple as plugging your phone cord into the back of your modem (instead of that pesky wall jack that’s always in a different room!). This phone line should be dedicated to business use only, to avoid interruption from personal phone calls.

The process only takes 2 steps and is much easier than it may sound!

1. Call your local ISP and ask for a digital phone line to be added to your current service (this can be done for a nominal fee). Ask your provider to REMOVE any features from this phone line (this includes call waiting, voicemail, call forwarding, etc.)

2. Plug your phone cord into your modem and your headset into the phone (see image below for an example).

Minimum Computer Requirements

Your work-from-home business will need a personal desktop computer or laptop that meets a minimum set of requirements.
