Whitepaper Reveals Eight Warning Signs that Employers Should Reconsider their Background Screening Providers

Since background checks are a crucial part of the hiring process in today’s business world, leading payroll and HR solutions provider Paycor® has teamed up with Attorney Lester Rosen, Founder and CEO of Employment Screening Resources® (ESR), for the whitepaper ‘8 Warning Signs You Should Reconsider Your Background Screening Provider.’ The link to download the complimentary whitepaper is available on the Paycor website at http://www.paycor.com/download-background-screening-whitepaper.

In the whitepaper, Rosen – author of ‘The Safe Hiring Manual,’ the first comprehensive guide to employment screening – emphasizes how background checks conducted on potential new hires need to be done legally and accurately by professional and accredited screening firms and not “data-vendors” that create more problems for employers than they solve. The whitepaper covers these eight warning signs that indicate an employer should take a closer look at their background screening provider:

  • 1. DOES THE BACKGROUND SCREENING FIRM PROMOTE “INSTANT BACKGROUND CHECKS”?
  • 2. DO THEY CLAIM TO HAVE A BETTER DATABASE?
  • 3. DO THEY CLAIM DIRECT CONNECTIONS WITH NUMEROUS COUNTY COURTS?
  • 4. DO THEY USE “OFFSHORE” FACILITIES/WORKERS?
  • 5. HAVE THEY BEEN ACCREDITED BY THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF PROFESSIONAL BACKGROUND SCREENERS (NAPBS®)?
  • 6. DO THEY USE HOMEBASED OPERATORS?
  • 7. DO THEY FAIL TO PROVIDE CLIENTS REGULAR UPDATES ON LEGAL CHANGES?
  • 8. HAVE THEY FAILED TO MENTION THE UPDATED U.S. EQUAL EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITY COMMISSION (EEOC) GUIDANCE ON USING CRIMINAL RECORDS DURING HIRING?
