Employment Screening Resources president Lester Rosen will be speaking at the SHRM Annual Conference on Wednesday, July 1. In addition, the ESRÂ book – Safe Hiring – will be at the SHRMStore and is currently available on the SHRMStoreâ€™s Web site.
See the SHRM blog entry for the SHRM annual at http://blogs.shrm.org/annual-conference-2009/?p=347Â Â Â
The following is from the SHRM blog:
“Before filling up with Gumbo, Jambalaya andÂ Red Beans and Rice, you may want to stop my presentation: Â â€œNegligent Hiring Mock Trial Demonstration: HR in the Hot Seat,â€Â It is set for Wednesday morning, July 1,2009 at 10 to 11:15 am.Â You will be stepping into a courtroom to witness a re-enactment of a jury trial for negligent hiring where a firm hired the â€œemployee from hell,â€ resulting in a customer being severely injured.Â Â You will act as the jury as you hear opening statements, testimony from the HR manager who hired the dangerous worker, testimony from Â an expert witness, closing arguments Â and legal instructions Â from the judge.Â You will even see a taped â€œre-enactmentâ€ of the attack by the dangerous worker as caught on a â€œsurveillance camera.â€Â
Of course, a real trial would take Â several day, but we can condensed the good parts into our session, leaving plenty of time for audience Â â€œdeliberationâ€ on what is due diligence, as well as what HR professional should be thinking about in order to avoid having to testify for real.Â Â Â
In fact, you can catch a glimpse of what you would see at http://www.backgroundchecktraining.com/Safe-Hiring-Trial-Video.asp “
Looking forward to seeing eveyone in New Orleans.
