Date/Time: Friday, April 25, 2014 at 1:00 PM

Speaker: Attorney Lester Rosen, Founder & CEO Employment Screening Resources (ESR)

Duration: 60 Minute Audio conference


Employers have long recognized that conducting due diligence on new hires is a mission critical task. Firms cannot afford to be sidetracked by employee problems such as workplace violence, theft, false resumes, embezzlement, harassment, or trumped-up injury claims as employers can be sued for negligent hiring if they hire someone they should have known, through the exercise of due diligence, was dangerous, unfit, dishonest, or unqualified. This session will review the top ten trends and best practices for 2014 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, off-shoring of personal data, and tools to protect against workplace violence.
