Attorney Lester Rosen, founder and chief executive officer (CEO) of Employment Screening Resources® (ESR), will present a session for members of the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) at the hybrid 2021 SHRM Talent Conference & Expo that will be held online and in Las Vegas, Nevada, from August 22 to 25, 2021.

Rosen will present the session “Legal and Effective Reference Checking & Credential and Education Verification” in person on Tuesday, August 24, 2021, from 2:45 PM to 3:45 PM Pacific Time. Rosen will teach attendees of the session how to effectively verify past employment, verify education information, and obtain references.

“With hiring decisions becoming more important in challenging economic times, verifying past employment and education have become critical issues for employers. Unfortunately, falsifying or inflating employment and educational accomplishments has become a significant problem for employers,” explains Rosen.
