Attorney Lester Rosen, a background check expert and founder and CEO of Employment Screening Resources (ESR), will host a two hour long webinar for titled ‘Risk Management: New Strategies for Employee Screening’ on Monday, July 23, 2012 at 3:30 PM Eastern (12:30 PM Pacific) to discuss the latest background check trends facilitating risk management practices that include re-screening current employees after they are initially screened when hired. For more information on the webinar, visit: “Like risk management itself, background screening must be ongoing,” says Rosen, author of ‘The Safe Hiring Manual,’ a comprehensive guide on employment screening. “While most organizations conduct pre-employment background checks on applicants, what are their screening strategies after hiring?” During the webinar, Rosen – a frequent speaker on due diligence issues for the ‘ESR Speaks’ program – will present post-hire screening strategies and a brief overview of current screening trends, such as:

  • How to conduct continual screening of key employees;
  • What to do about newly-acquired employees in a merger or acquisition;
  • How to proceed when you do uncover past criminal offenses or falsified credentials of current employees;
  • How to use the latest Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) guidance on the use of arrest and conviction records by employers;
  • Proper screening procedures for newly-acquired employees in a merger or acquisition; and
  • The “do’s and don’ts” of using social media in background screening and its proper role in a screening strategy.
Rosen says that without post-hire screening, employers would not be able to discover if current employees have had a criminal offense occur after they were hired or recent personal finance problems that could make them a higher risk to embezzle from the company. Rosen founded Employment Screening Resources (ESR) in 1997 and the company is accredited by the National Association of Professional Background Screeners (NAPBS®), a non-profit trade association that promotes ethical business practices, compliance with the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), and awareness of consumer protection and privacy rights issues within the background screening industry. Rosen was also the chairperson of the steering committee that founded the NAPBS and served as the first co-chairman.
