Understanding Background Checks for Staffing Firms: Don’t Take Unnecessary Hiring Risks



You spend a great deal of time and effort to ensure that every employee you place is qualified and safe. Of course, hiring and placement decisions are not risk-free—and the steps you take to reduce these risks could carry their own risk if you don’t follow the law when researching and hiring candidates.

During this webinar, Les Rosen of Employment Screening Resources will discuss the issues that all employers need to be concerned with—including the effective use of social media for hiring, legal and proper use of criminal record searches, compliance with “ban the box” laws, and avoiding technical violations of the Fair Credit Reporting Act to forestall FCRA class action lawsuits.

During this webinar, attendees will learn

  • What advantages there are, and potential risks, to using online searches and social media to source candidates
  • Which issues staffing professionals may face when performing background checks on employees
  • How to review and audit due diligence practices so their firm stays compliant with the law
