Attorney and safe hiring expert Lester Rosen, President of San Francisco, California-area background check provider Employment Screening Resources (ESR), will present an educational session – ‘The Top Ten Trends for Background Checks in 2011 – What Every Employer Needs to Know’ – at the 2011 Los Angeles HR Star Conference held at the Los Angeles Convention Center in Los Angeles, California on March 30, 2011. The session will review the top trends, best practices, and legal developments for background checks.
“For the fourth consecutive year, Employment Screening Resources has identified trends starting to make a difference as the employment background check industry matures,” explains Rosen, 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 ‘ESR’s Top Ten Trends in Background Screening for 2011’ list is the increased focus on whether the use of credit reports by employers during employment screening is discriminatory.”
In the session, Rosen will examine in detail cutting-edge issues such as the new Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s (EEOC) focus on criminal records and credit reports so attendees may learn legally complaint best practices to keep their businesses productive, safe, and out of court. Other topics covered in the session will include:
- Social networking sites,
- International background screening,
- Resume fraud,
- Temporary workers,
- Off-shoring of personal data, and
- Tools to protect against workplace violence.
Rosen is a nationally recognized consultant, writer, and speaker on the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), pre-employment screening, and safe hiring issues. In addition, Rosen was the chairperson of the steering committee that founded the National Association of Professional Background Screeners (NAPBS), the professional trade organization for the background check industry, and served as the first co-chairman.
