Background checks are a necessary step in avoiding negligent hiring. Even after the most diligent candidate selection process, hiring someone without conducting a thorough background check can lead to major legal and financial ramifications for your company. If your new hire is dishonest about his/her education, employment or criminal history, you could face the burden of having an unqualified worker wasting resources or even having a violent employee in your office.
This webinar will help employers and hiring managers understand how to practice due diligence in hiring new employees. Our expert, Lester Rosen, will discuss strategies and trends in obtaining and utilizing background information to keep you from facing a negligent hiring lawsuit.
