Social media and online identity analysis help to fill in the gaps of information on a job applicant's background when done in conjunction with more traditional types of background checks. However, companies that manually perform social media background checks may not be aware of the near constant evolution in employment law and open themselves up to class action exposure. The webinar "Top 5 Best Practices for Social Media Background Checks" will help employers and HR Professionals stay compliant and ahead of the curve when screening job applicants online. Hosted by Ben Mones, CEO and Founder of leading social media screening provider Fama (http://fama.io/), the webinar will show organizations how to comply with the federal Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) that regulates background checks and avoid using inconsistent screening criteria online to unintentionally discriminate against certain groups. With technology and social media outpacing the law, join one of the pioneers in the online screening space to see how employers can give applicants the opportunity to explain any potentially adverse social media posts and activities. Attendees will stay ahead of the curve.
