  • Legal cases concerning background checks;
  • Advancements in background check technology;
  • New government regulations for screening at the federal and state level; and
  • Questions and concerns raised by employers, recruiters, human resources professionals, and the security industry regarding background checks.

Rosen will present a webcast with HRTrainingCenter.com titled ‘Top Ten Trends For Background Checks in 2014’ on Wednesday, January 15, 2014  from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM Eastern Time. The program has been approved for 1.5 recertification credit hours through the HR Certification Institute (HRCI).
