All companies want to make a good hire, so using a resource such as a background screening service is pretty commonplace, but this comes with preparation and planning. One item that is a must for any employer is in knowing the background screening service they are using will keep them within compliance and mitigate the risk of litigation.

On Thursday, June 20, Dr. Alan Lasky, Sr. VP at Universal Background Screening conducted an informative webinar that discussed what employers need to be aware of when using a background screening service. Some of the areas he covered during the presentation were how the background screening process works for employers and potential hires, the current trends in background screening, Federal and state guidelines and legislation rules, EEOC and FTC regulatory updates, recent articles that bring to light the importance of following best practice procedures, recent class action lawsuits brought against employers and why compliance is a must, along with Ban the Box updates.
