Event Material

Eight out of ten resumes that come across your desk will be embellished if not contain outright lies.  A bad hiring decision can lead to costly mistakes by employees who are not qualified for the job, employees who may steal from your organization, or even negligent hiring claims from third parties.  These costs only increase when you end up having to terminate the employee just to have them sue you for wrongful termination. 

Background checks are important.  Yet, employers get so frustrated through the process.  Former employees give you no information except your candidate worked for them in a certain position.  Employers increasingly turn to other ways to get vital information about their candidates – social media searches and using outsiders to conduct background checks.  When employers use outside agencies, they must comply with the federal Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) as it regulates how employers conduct pre-employment screening and investigations of current employees. The FCRA is full of potential landmines that can expose unwary employers to liability. In addition, at least 27 states have their own version of the FCRA.
