Attorney Lester Rosen, the author of “The Safe Hiring Manual” and founder of Employment Screening Resources (ESR), will present a session on “Legal and Effective Reference Checking, Credential and Education Verification” at the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) Annual Conference & Expo 2023 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Attendees of the session with Rosen – which takes place from 3:30 PM to 4:30 PM Pacific Time on Tuesday, June 13, 2023 – will learn how to legally and effectively verify past employment and education information, as well as review effective techniques to spot phony credentials and fake degrees. Attendees of the session will also:
- Learn effective and legal strategies to verify an applicant’s past employment and education accomplishments.
- Explore why employment references create legal issues for employers and strategies for obtaining information and dealing with requests from other employers.
- Learn why phony education credentials are problematic and how to spot degree mills.
- Review new technologies and approaches to credentials verifications including blockchain, Artificial Intelligence, and career passports.
- Understand special issues when it comes to social media and sites and international employment and education verification.
With hiring decisions becoming more critical in challenging economic times, verifying past employment, credentials, and education and obtaining references have become critical. Unfortunately, falsifying or inflating employment and educational accomplishments has become a significant problem for employers.
