“Employers have long recognized that conducting due diligence on new hires is a mission critical task,” says Rosen, author of ‘The Safe Hiring Manual.’ “Firms cannot afford to be sidetracked by employee problems such as workplace violence, theft, false resumes, embezzlement, harassment, or trumped-up injury claims as employers can be sued for negligent hiring if they hire someone they should have known, through the exercise of due diligence, was dangerous, unfit, dishonest, or unqualified.”

The 90 minute session will review the top ten trends and best practices for 2014 when it comes to background checks and safe hiring, including the use of social networking sites, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) approach to the use of criminal records and credit reports, international background screening, resume fraud, dealing with temporary workers, privacy, off-shoring of personal data, and tools to protect against workplace violence.

Attendees will learn from Rosen – a noted background check expert – legally-complaint best practices they can utilize to avoid a bad hire and stay productive and out of court. Specifically, the webcast covers:

  • Current trends, best practices, and legal developments affecting due diligence and hiring for 2014.
  • Cutting-edge issues such as the new EEOC focus on criminal records and credit reports.
  • Guidance for using social networking sites.
  • Tips for international background screening.
