Event Description



Measures That Employers Can Take Immediately To Help Ensure Legal Compliance

Employers have long recognized that conducting due diligence on new hires is a mission critical task. Firms cannot afford to be sidetracked by employee problems such as workplace violence, theft, false resumes, embezzlement, harassment or trumped-up injury claims. Employers can be sued for negligent hiring if they hire someone they should have known, through the exercise of due diligence, was dangerous, unfit, dishonest or unqualified.

This session by attorney Lester Rosen will review the top ten trends and best practices for 2014 when it comes to background checks and safe hiring, including the use of social networking sites, the EEOC approach to the use of criminal records and credit reports, international background screening, resume fraud, dealing with temporary workers, privacy and off shoring of personal data, and tools to protect against workplace violence.

Learn legally compliant best practices to keep a business productive, and out of court and steps a firm can take immediately to avoid a bad hire. Employee problems are caused by problematic employees, and this session will help HR professionals avoid bad hires in the first place by keeping current on trends, best practices and legal developments  affecting background checks and due diligence in their hiring programs, including practical steps employers can take immediately to avoid legal entanglements.

This session will review the top ten trends for 2014 when it comes to background checks and safe hiring including:

  • The “Ban the Box” movement that eliminates criminal history question from job applications
  • Updated Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) Guidance on criminal records
  • Class action lawsuits for failing to perform background checks properly
  • Use of NAPBS Accredited background screening firms by employers
  • Identity theft and offshoring when screening
