Who Should Attend

Executive and workforce management, staffing and recruiting, and placement and direct hire professionals, as well as health care staffing professionals


Is your firm violating the Fair Credit Reporting Act? Did you know you’re liable for negligent hiring? In today’s litigious environment, it’s more important than ever that staffing firms perform background checks on employees they place with clients to improve applicant quality, reduce theft and violence by employees, and protect itself from negligent hiring. Human resource professionals must understand what makes a background check truly comprehensive, and the differences between bad data and good data, to ensure the effectiveness of the background checks they perform—plus, they need to keep up with the everchanging regulatory environment regarding the use of criminal records and consumer reports.

This session is a must-attend for all staffing professionals who are responsible for talent management, hiring, and recruiting, or compliance practices in their firms.

During this webinar, attendees will learn

  • The real reasons firms should perform employee background checks
  • The components of a truly comprehensive background check
  • How to avoid common compliance problems and litigation traps
  • Where criminal records come from
  • What “order review” is, and why it’s important
