Safe hiring is a hot topic right now with new rulings on background checks and increased audit activity from the EEOC and OFCCP. In short, changes to the regulatory environment are complicating matters for every size employer in the US. In today’s environment, you not only need to have a set of policies, procedures and practices in place, you also need to understand – really understand – the federal and state regulations governing applicant screening and safe hiring.
In this week’s episode of The Proactive Employer, Joel Passen, Newton’s Head of Marketing joins Les Rosen, CEO of Employment Screening Resources, for a discussion about “Safe Hiring”, the elements of a safe hiring plan, the most common questions and concerns employers have about hiring, what candidate information you have to have, what you can ask for, and what to avoid, and how to implement a Safe Hiring Program at your company.
This show will air live on Thursday, May 17th at 3 PM Eastern / 12 Noon Pacific on the VoiceAmerica Business Channel.
