“Employee problems are caused by problem employees,” says Rosen, the author of “The Safe Hiring Manual” and “The Safe Hiring Audit.” During the event, he will provide a number of real-world case studies where employers stepped on legal landmines that could have been easily avoided with a safe hiring program with background checks.

Some of the top trends for background checks covered by Rosen will include Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) class action lawsuits, “Ban the Box” laws that remove the criminal history question from job applications, Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) guidance for criminal records, and social media background checks.

Rosen is a nationally recognized expert on safe hiring and background checks who previously was a criminal trial lawyer in Marin County, California. A graduate of the University of California – Davis School of Law, he is also a frequent speaker on background check issues at numerous national and state conferences.

The Marin Business Forum and the Novato Chamber of Commerce event “Background Checks” featuring Attorney Lester Rosen will take place at Drake’s Landing Community Room located at 300 Drakes Landing Road in Greenbrae, California.
