Background checks are a critical component of the hiring process for many organizations, helping to protect employers, their employees and their customers. But many organizations struggle with the question of how to conduct background screening in a universally acceptable manner. In an age of increased litigation and legislation, employment background screening isn’t as simple as it once was.

Aside from the amplified legal risks, employers are struggling to filter through all of the information that’s now available. Many are asking, should we use social media? If we do, what should we do with that information? How concerned should we be about distorted or exaggerated information on a candidate’s resume? What about candidates with criminal records – what are our obligations?

In this week’s installment of The Proactive Employer, we talk about how organizations currently use background checks, how they respond to adverse findings, their greatest concerns, and what lies ahead with guest Nick Fishman. Mr. Fishman is co-founder and Executive Vice President of EmployeeScreenIQ. He is the chief pioneer and architect of EmployeeScreen University, a first-of-its-kind online educational learning resource for human resources, security and risk-management professionals. Nick is a frequent speaker on industry issues including new technologies in employment screening, best practices and industry trends. He is also a frequent blogger on the company’s IQ Blog, conducts regular podcast interviews with industry insiders and serves as editor of the company’s quarterly newsletter,The Verifier.
