    Session Information:

    Performing background checks is critical.  You can improve applicant quality, reduce theft and violence, and protect yourself from negligent hiring.  But not knowing what makes a good screen or the differences in data can make a background check useless.  You also must keep up with changing regs regarding criminal records while there’s no education.  You will learn:

    • The real reasons you should perform employee background checks and the components of a truly comprehensive background check – what you need and what you don’t.
    • Where criminal records come from, what constitutes “good data” and the differences in manual data poses.
    • About “order review” and why it’s important, fingerprinting (and why it’s not), credit reports (can I run them?)
    • And federal searches
    • Who regulates background screening and why, common compliancy problems and how to avoid them
    • Including applicant authorization forms, adverse action, and what charges you can consider and for how long, including state and federal regulations.

     Meeting approved for HRCI & SHRM Certification Credit.
