Safe Hiring Audit and Due Diligence for Employers

Employment Screening Resources (ESR), a leading pre-employment background firm, and Facts on Demand Press have published “ The Safe Hiring Audit.” This book empowers human resources and security professionals, business owners and hiring managers with the resources needed to perform an effective audit of their employment procedures.

The 25-point action plan evaluates current hiring practices, identifies necessary changes, and shows how to implement these changes. Using the Audit’s action plan assists a company’s compliance with workplace laws, thus helping keep the company out of court.

The book was authored by ESR President Lester S. Rosen, with Michael Sankey, President of BRB Publications.

According to Rosen, “Companies of all sizes must periodically audit their employment practices to insure due diligence and compliance with discrimination and privacy laws, and determine whether an organization is using the current best policies, practices and procedures.” Rosen added that an effective audit can help avoid the high financial costs, legal complications, and managerial headaches of hiring unqualified and even dangerous employees.

Author Lester S. Rosen is an attorney-at-law and founder of Employment Screening Resources (, a national pre-employment background screening firm. He also is the author of, “The Safe Hiring Manual,” the first definitive book on background checks and safe hiring, and The Safe Hiring Course, the only online educational course available in the U.S. specifically for the background screening industry. 

Michael Sankey is the founder and CEO of BRB Publications, Inc. (, the nation’s leading publisher of books and web-based content dealing with access to public records and government information.
