Employment Screening Resources Releases Fourth Annual List of Background Check Developments

Employment Screening Resources (ESR) – a nationwide background check provider to employers accredited by the National Association of Professional Background Screeners (NAPBS®) – has released its ‘Fourth Annual Top Ten Trends in Background Screening for 2011’ as predicted by ESR founder, President, and safe hiring expert Lester Rosen.

“For the fourth consecutive year, Employment Screening Resources has identified new trends that are starting to make a difference as the employment background screening industry matures,” explains Rosen, an Attorney at Law and author of ‘The Safe Hiring Manual,’ the first comprehensive guide for employment background checks. “For the second year in a row, the number one trend on the list is the increased focus on whether the use of credit reports by employers during employment screening is discriminatory.”

An article detailing each individual trend was published on the Employment Screening Resources website in ascending order beginning in December 2010. Below is a complete listing of the ESR ‘Fourth Annual Top Ten Trends in Background Screening for 2011’:

Rosen, a frequent speaker on safe hiring issues, selected each trend after closely reviewing background screening news and developments from various sources, a practice that helped him predict future background screening industry trends in the past.
