Attorney Lester Rosen, founder and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of global background check firm Employment Screening Resources® (ESR), will speak at a Santa Clara County Employer Advisory Council (EAC) event about “Background Checks in California: State Specific Rules and More” on Tuesday, October 23, 2018, from 8:00 AM to 10:00 AM at the Biltmore Hotel and Suites in Santa Clara, California.
Background checks have become a standard part of the hiring procedure for most employers. Since each employee represents a large investment of time and money, employers want to make sure they hire the right person since one bad hire can become a legal and financial nightmare. However, background checks are subject to a great deal of litigation, regulation, and legislation, especially in California.
Employers need to exercise due diligence in employee selection and ensure they navigate through a maze of California and federal rules. Under California rules, failure to comply with numerous technical requirements can lead to demand for $10,000 in civil damages for each and every violation. This interactive presentation will help employers to recognize critical compliance issues in California.
Rosen – author of “The Safe Hiring Manual” – is a noted expert on background checks and frequent speaker on due diligence issues at conferences nationwide. He was the chairperson of the steering committee that founded the National Association of Professional Background Screeners (NAPBS), a professional trade organization for the screening industry, and has served as an expert witness in court.
As a source for background check expertise, Rosen has been quoted in many news stories by USA Today, Bloomberg, CNET, NPR, Businessweek, Reuters, Christian Science Monitor, HR Magazine, Workforce Magazine, REALTOR® Magazine, and numerous newspapers and websites across the United States. He has written white papers about screening and selects the annual ESR Top Ten Background Check Trends.
The event featuring Rosen will offer credits from the HR Certification Institute (HRCI) and the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) and will include a breakfast buffet. The Biltmore Hotel and Suites is located at 2151 Laurelwood Road in Santa Clara, California.
