Safe hiring expert Attorney Lester Rosen, CEO of Employment Screening Resources (ESR) and author of ‘The Safe Hiring Manual,’ will host a live one hour long webinar titled ‘Conducting International Background Checks – Best Practices, Trends and Legal Compliance’ on Thursday, August 11, 2011 at 3:00 p.m. ET (12:00 p.m. PT) to help U.S. employers conduct international background checks on workers who have lived, worked, studied, or spent much time visiting foreign countries.

“While international background screening is challenging, the mere fact that information is more difficult to obtain from outside of the U.S. does not relieve employers from their due diligence obligation associated with hiring,” says Rosen, a frequent speaker on employment screening and safe hiring issues.
