Rosen will help businesses examine the latest trends, best practices, and legal compliance issues of pre-employment background screening.

- Why background checks and due diligence have become mission critical for employers.
- The current trends, best practices and legal developments affecting due diligence and hiring.
- Cutting edge issues such as the new EEOC focus on criminal records and credit reports and the use of social network sites.
