Background Screening: The Deep Dive into Criminal Records

In this timely 75-minute virtual session, learn:

  • To protect yourself from negligent hiring!

  • How to know the different sources of data and what you’re REALLY receiving (or NOT receiving)

  • Are you compliant with the FCRA and how do you know?

Do you know what information you're really receiving when you run a background check?

Do you depend on a screening firm that tells you, "You’re getting it all" (whatever "all" is)? Most employers are somewhat familiar with "running packages" but haven't been told exactly what records and data sources those "packages" or reports are searching, let alone how often the record sources are updated. Unfortunately for employers, this information is critical to receiving a "comprehensive" and compliant background check.

In this 75-minute webinar, learn about criminal record data, where it comes from, how accurate it really is, how often it's updated, automation in county and national reports, state reports (when and where to run them), federal reports (yes, they're required for the banking industry!), and much more!

  • Know about "automated data" and its associated risks
  • How to run a comprehensive, COMPLIANT background check
  • Discover how data is received, compiled, and reported, and the difference in sources ("fluff" data vs. usable data)
  • Are you violating the FCRA? How about state or federal laws?
  • Negligent hiring, class-action lawsuits, applicant authorization forms (an extremely hot area of litigation against employers)

Free Compliance Reviews Provided by the Speaker

Debra will conduct a free compliance review of your company’s background-screening policy and applicant authorization and acknowledgement forms one-on-one. During this one-on-one, she will walk you through anything that is incorrect and show you what you need to avoid litigation and to become compliant under the FCRA.

Employment Background Check Guidelines

Under the FCRA, you’re typically free to conduct employment background checks and use the information if you have a clear business interest, such as hiring, firing, reassigning, or promoting someone. But you can’t run a job background check on a whim. Learn how to properly conduct reference or background checks, how to select third-party background firms, and why screening candidates online on social networking sites is legally risky business.
