The Northern California Human Resources Association (NCHRA) has scheduled an online webinar titled ‘Negligent Hiring and Background Checks – Best Practices and Legal Compliance’ on Friday, April 10, 2015 from 10:30 a.m. to12:00 p.m. The webinar will be hosted by Attorney Lester Rosen, founder and CEO of Employment Screening Resources (ESR), a nationwide accredited background check firm located in the San Francisco, California-area.

“Negligent hiring is one of the fastest growing areas of employment litigation,” says Rosen, author of ‘The Safe Hiring Manual,’ the first comprehensive guide to background checks. “Employers need to do background checks, but they need to do them right.”

Attendees of the webinar will learn legally complaint best practices to keep their organizations productive and out of court. They will find out about cutting-edge issues such as Ban the Box, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) guidance on the use of criminal records, and issues surrounding the use of social networking sites for screening. Rosen will also review the federal Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), important California rules, and how to avoid class action lawsuits involving background checks.

Rosen founded Employment Screening Resources (ESR) in 1997 and the company is accredited by the National Association of Professional Background Screeners (NAPBS). He is also a frequent presenter nationwide on employment screening and safe hiring issues. The cost of registration for the webinar is free for NCHRA Members and $49 for the General Public. The webinar qualifies for 1.5 Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) Professional Development Credits (PDCs) and 1.5 HR Certification Institute (HRCI) Recertification Credits.
