“HR professionals responsible for supervising, implementing, or administering employment screening background checks for their organizations need to make certain their organization does not hire anyone that is dangerously unfit, unqualified, or dishonest,” says Rosen, author of ‘The Safe Hiring Manual.’

With negligent hiring is one of the fastest growing areas of employment litigation, workshop attendees will learn legally complaint best practices to keep their business productive and out of court, including:

  • Conducting past employment checks.
  • Obtaining and utilizing criminal records.
  • Verifying education using social networking sites.
  • Selecting and evaluating a screening firm.

In addition, Rosen will discuss federal and state laws that control the background check process such as the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), unique “only in California” rules, and the impact of new National Association of Professional Background Screeners (NAPBS) accreditation standards for background firms.

“Just one bad hire by an employer can result in a legal and financial nightmare,” warns Rosen, a frequent speaker on due diligence issues as part of the ‘ESR Speaks’ training program. “Employers should take steps to implement a legally compliant program to help them hire the best employees.”

Rosen is founder and CEO of Employment Screening Resources® (ESR), a nationwide background check firm located in the San Francisco, California-area and accredited by the NAPBS.
