Attorney Lester Rosen, a noted background check expert and the founder and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of leading global background screening provider Employment Screening Resources® (ESR), will speak during the 2019 NAPBS Annual Conference hosted by the National Association of Professional Background Screeners (NAPBS) in San Antonio, Texas, from September 8 to 10, 2019.
Rosen – the author of “The Safe Hiring Manual” – will co-present a session about “Becoming an Expert or Expert Witness in Background Screening” with co-host Jason Morris from Morris Group Consulting from 11:30 a.m. to 12:20 p.m. Central Standard Time on Tuesday, September 10, 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. This session covers 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.
The 2019 NAPBS Annual Conference – which has the theme of “One World. One NAPBS.” – will offer a diverse range of educational topics that include global screening techniques, strategic business sessions, information security practices, legal and compliance guidelines, legislative updates, and what is on the horizon for NAPBS members.
