Badges play a crucial role in fostering trust within the Airtasker community.
Badges provide valuable information to you as a Customer when choosing the right Tasker for your tasks. When certain criteria are met, a badge is displayed on a member's profile.
It's important to keep in mind that badges are awarded based on a point-in-time check. This means that the results reflect the relevant records available on the date of verification.
When engaging a Tasker with a badge, we encourage you to verify their current credentials before proceeding with the task. It's always a proactive step to ensure accuracy and peace of mind.
For more detailed information on verification and badges, you can refer to Section 10 of Airtasker's Terms & Conditions.
Currently, the badges available are:
Criminal Background Check
A Criminal Background Check Badge is only added to a member’s profile if they do not have a Disclosable Court Outcome as notified to Airtasker by a verification provider. They must apply for this free Background Check Badge and it is verified by a 3rd party verification provider, Checkr.
