Attorney Lester Rosen, founder and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of leading global background check provider Employment Screening Resources® (ESR), will speak about “Becoming an Expert or Expert Witness in Background Screening” during the 2019 National Association of Professional Background Screeners (NAPBS) Annual Conference that will be held in San Antonio, Texas from September 8th to 10th, 2019.
Rosen – the author of “The Safe Hiring Manual” and a frequent speaker about background screening issues – will present the breakout session with co-host Jason Morris from Morris Group Consulting from 11:30 a.m. to 12:20 p.m. Central Standard Time (CST) on Tuesday, September 10th, 2019. The 50-minute session will outline ways to advance knowledge in the background screening field and develop expertise.
With the increase in litigation related to background screening, many screeners are contacted by attorneys who are looking for expert witnesses. The session by Rosen and Morris will cover the ins and outs of expert witness testimony, including the legal and practical aspects of acting as an expert witness, and will also include a “mock trial” demonstration of a direct and cross-examination of a background screening expert in court.
In June 2019, the NAPBS – a non-profit trade association representing background screening companies – announced that registration was open for the 2019 NAPBS Annual Conference that will have the theme of “One World. One NAPBS.” Attendees new to the screening industry and seasoned experts will both be able to take away valuable information and resources to benefit their specific business goals.
The 2019 NAPBS Annual Conference will offer a diverse range of educational topics that include global screening techniques, strategic business sessions, technology and information security practices, legal and compliance guidelines, legislative updates, and what is on the horizon for NAPBS members.
