Effective background screening firms

Clearly background screening is the most effective way to protect the recruiter, the employer, and the business form costly hiring mistakes and possible litigation.  To conduct a thorough screening that meets legal requirements requires a unique set of skills and knowledge, thus outsourcing just makes sense.  A couple years ago I read an article published in Occupational Health & Safety titled "Background screening and Safe Hiring" which states: " An employer should look for a professional…See More

Dealing with FCRA

Employers and recruiters are aware that hiring an applicant with a criminal or civil background or who has falsified credentials may carry enormous legal thus a large economic loss.  To avoid this, employers and recruiters are relying on pre-employment background screening.  This makes sense because pre-employment background promotes a safe and more profitable workplace by protecting the employer form negligent hiring litigation, incidents of harassment or workplace violence, false claims,…See More

One of the most important blogs you will read is a blog that shows how to protect yourself and your company for the hassle not to mention the expense of a negligent hiring law suit.  When another person feels they have been injured as a direct result of an action by an employees (an employee your recruited or hired)  they have the right to file a negligent hiring suit.   As a recruiter, business owner, or employer you can reduce the possibility of an incident happening in the FIRST place IF you…See More

There is little doubt we live in a litigious society.  One if the most commonly filled law suits is negligent hiring or retention against the employer and the person responsible for hiring or referring the employee who caused the perceived injury.  The best way to have this type suit dismissed as frivolous is to have a professional and thorough pre-employment screening program in place...a program conducted by a licensed private investigator who specializes in pre-employment screening.  The…See More

What Should the Final Report Include?

Last month I posted a blog titled "Recruiting, How to do it Better and Safer"  In it I listed why employers typically engage in a pre-employment screening program and why choosing a licensed private investigator who is a CRA would be beneficial.  The question that begs to be asked is, what to look for when selecting a private investigation agency  or employment agency and what will the final report include?  After all your client expects you to get the right person the first time:The agency…See More

Seeking the right candidate

I have no doubt that recruiting from Facebook and other social networks is the thing of the future.  My question is, once you find a person on Facebook, then what?  The answer would have to be screen this person to find out if he/she is all they say they are.  The way to do that is more than just a background check. Last year, the National Association of Chamber or Commerce estimated that as many as 33% of all applicants put false information or omit facts on their application.  Facts like…See More

Beware of Background Checks!

In doing research for an article about pre-employment scening,  I conducted an experiment involving  sites on the Internet that claim to do background checks.  I ran a Goggle search and was amazed at how many sites popped up...most claiming to be free.  I randomly selected 15 sites and, with the consent of my adult daughter, did a "background check" on her.  The first thing I noticed is they are NOT free.  Some allow a "free trial membership" but I had to submit my credit card information and…See More

Recruting, How to do it Better and Safer

Posted on January 11, 2011 at 12:00pm 0 Comments

The job of a recruiter is to recommend the right person for the job.  Clearly a important part of that is having a complete picture of the candidate, including a pre-employment screening.  This is even more important for you, and your company, since YOU recruited this person.  Here is what I mean.  Typically you engage in pre-employment screening to:
