Attorney and background check expert Lester Rosen, Founder and CEO of Employment Screening Resources (ESR), will present two sessions at the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) 2012 Annual Conference and Exposition in Atlanta, Georgia. Rosen will present ‘International Background Checks: Global Due Diligence and Legal Compliance’ on Monday, June 25, 2012 from 4:00 p.m. to 5:15 p.m. Eastern and ‘The Top 10 Trends for Background Checks in 2012 – What Every Employer Needs to Know’ on Tuesday, June 26, 2012 from 2:15 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. Eastern.

- Rosen’s first session – ‘International Background Checks: Global Due Diligence and Legal Compliance’ – is worth 1.25 International Recertification Credits and will introduce participants to international background checks, including the legal, practical, and cultural challenges faced when obtaining information outside of the country. Topics covered include the ins and outs of international criminal records, terrorist databases, and whether background checks are needed on applicants with a visa.
- Rosen’s second session – ‘The Top 10 Trends for Background Checks in 2012 – What Every Employer Needs to Know’ – is worth 1.25 General Recertification Credits and will review the top 10 background check trends for 2012, including the use of social networking sites, the EEOC approach to the use of criminal records and credit reports, international screening, resume fraud, dealing with temporary workers, privacy and off shoring of personal data, and tools to protect against workplace violence.
