Employee problems are caused by problem employees, and this session will help you avoid bad hires in the first place by keeping current on trends, best practices and legal developments affecting background checks and due diligence in your hiring programs
You can be the subject of lawsuits for negligent hiring if you hire someone that you should have known, through the exercise of due diligence, was dangerous, unfit, dishonest or unqualified. This session will review the top 10 trends and best practices for 2012 when it comes to background checks and safe hiring, including the use of social networking sites, the EEOC approach to the use of criminal records and credit reports, international background screening, resume fraud, dealing with temporary workers, privacy and off shoring of personal data, and tools to protect against workplace violence.
