Dawn Standerwick, Vice President of Strategic Growth at Employment Screening Resources® (ESR), will present a webinar entitled “Social Media and Background Screening: If It’s on the Internet, Isn’t it Fair Game?” for the Alliance of Channel Women at 4:00 PM Eastern Time (1:00 PM Pacific Time) on Thursday, August 20, 2020.
The webinar hosted by Standerwick will explore the legal aspects and best practices a company should consider when using social media to select and screen candidates. Leveraging social media for sourcing, recruiting, and employer branding can be a powerful tool to help companies turn online data into actionable insight if done right.
However, employers need to be aware of the potential dangers of social media screening. What might seem like a strategic use of social media could be a fast track to litigation, governmental investigations, and bad press.
