Employment Screening Resources (ESR), a leading pre-employment background firm, and Facts on Demand Press have published “Â The Safe Hiring Audit.” This book empowers human resources and security professionals, business owners and hiring managers with the resources needed to perform an effective audit of their employment procedures.
The 25-point action plan evaluates current hiring practices, identifies necessary changes, and shows how to implement these changes. Using the Auditâ€™s action plan assists a companyâ€™s compliance with workplace laws, thus helping keep the company out of court.
The book was authored by ESR President Lester S. Rosen, with Michael Sankey, President of BRB Publications.
According to Rosen, “Companies of all sizes must periodically audit their employment practices to insure due diligence and compliance with discrimination and privacy laws, and determine whether an organization is using the current best policies, practices and procedures.” Rosen added that an effective audit can help avoid the high financial costs, legal complications, and managerial headaches of hiring unqualified and even dangerous employees.

ASIS, the worlds leading secrity orgqanization, reviewed the book by ESR President Lester Rosen, The Safe Hiring Audit.Â Â The bookÂ provides a blueprint to evaluate and improve a company’s hiring procedures. Companies of all sizes can identify potential problems and insure compliant hiring practices.Â This guide provides a step-by-step action plan to evaluate current hiring practices and make changes to strengthen their businesses and avoid potential problems.Â It is done by means of a 25 point audit.
The ASIS review noted that:
“The book is conveniently written in an â€œauditâ€ format. Each chapter begins with questions for the reader to answer to determine how the company measures up in terms of legal compliance. At the end of each chapter, each audit question is presented again, the information from the chapter is summarized, and â€œbest practicesâ€ are discussed to ensure that the reader understands the material and how to apply it.”
“By the end of the book, the reader will understand why safe hiring is a critical basic business practice. The bookâ€™s appendices include a summary of rights under FCRA, information on U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission notices, an application process checklist and worksheet, and descriptions of preemployment tools to aid the hiring process. These resources will undoubtedly be used again and again as readers maintain their own worksheets and checklists.
“This work is an excellent reference for professionals with hiring authority.”
