Event Description

Can you rely on instant background screening? How does immigration verification fit in? Find out how much of background screening you can do electronically — and when you’ll need to get your hands dirty to keep your company out of a negligent-hire situation!

Has negligent hiring changed from “the employer never did the background check” to “the background check was inadequate or incomplete”? Can you get an adequate and complete background check without hands-on intervention? The key is to know the federal and state laws regarding background screening and immigration compliance— and what kind of information is available electronically versus what you’ll need to research manually.

Based on the presenters’ extensive experience and knowledge, Sleuthing 101: How to Avoid Hiring the Employee From Hell gives you a comprehensive discussion of federal and state background-screening laws, including changes in state and federal immigration laws, the Form I-9, and use of the Department of Homeland Security employment verification system.

Join the experts in background screening and immigration and employment laws, Barry Nadell and Robert Divine, as they reveal the critical steps you need to consider to prevent mistakenly hiring an employee who may harm your company’s reputation, to comply with increasing requirements of state and federal authorities, and to avoid discrimination and other suits that can arise from “going too far.”
Here's some of what you'll learn in this information-packed, eye-opening conference:

  • Are you and your vendors keeping up with the changes to federal and state immigration laws dealing with the Form I-9? If you aren’t, your company could be in a world of trouble!
  • Learn how technology and legislation are improving your ability to make good hiring decisions and mitigate risk.
  • But will technology be your company’s downfall? Can you really rely on everything from an electronic employment application to electronic completion of I-9 Forms and verification of a new hire’s right to work in the United States? Our experts have answers!
  • Arm yourself with a broad understanding of state and federal background-screening laws, including a federal versus state law comparison.
  • Know what information you can find electronically and what requires hand research — from sex offender index searches and incarceration records to license/education verification and a social security trace.
  • You could get more than just a slap on the wrist for Form I-9 noncompliance! Find out about employer sanctions, government contracting debarment, criminal investigations, and RICO lawsuits from unions and competitors, and understand the Immigration Reform and Control Act to stay out of hot water.
  • How you can integrate all your background searching into one comprehensive click!
  • And much more!

Plus: Get a chance to ask your own questions on background screening and immigration/employment laws during the interactive Q&A session!
You're sure to walk away with the legal and practical knowledge you need to screen potential hires effectively and keep your company compliant!
