Lake Forest, CA (PRWEB) July 13, 2005 -
Â Preeminent workplace violence expert, W. Barry Nixon, SPHR, Executive Director, National Institute for the Prevention of Workplace Violence, Inc. will present a workshop titled: Employer Beware: Will Your Background Screening Process Protect Your Company in This Era of Terrorism, Child Molestation, and Domestic Abuse at the ASIS International 51st Annual Seminar and Exhibits in Orlando, FL, on Wednesday, September 14, 2005 at 11:00 AM.
The session, sponsored by the Crime/Loss Prevention Council, will focus on how the advent of multi-million dollar negligent hiring settlements, heightened concerns about terrorism and identify theft has caused background screening to be in vogue and will reveal the results of the National Institute for Prevention of Workplace Violence, Inc.Âs nationwide survey of employers that was recently conducted to identify the most used practices in background screening.
ÂBackground screening is an emerging industry that is experiencing explosive growth. The industry remains relatively unregulated except for FCRA/FACTA requirements, although the National Association of Professional Background Screeners has been formed to create a voice for the industry and to promulgate high standards,Â commented Nixon.
ÂUsing data from the InstituteÂs 2005 Employer's Background Screening Practices study, this session explores the scope and quality of services being provided from employersÂ perspectives,Â Nixon added.
The 2005 EmployerÂs Background Screening Practices Study is a comprehensive study covering all aspects of background checking practices from asking employers what kind of background checks they conduct, establishing how satisfied employers are with external background checking firms to establishing the degree of employee training in this field.
Media will be interested in attending the presentation to gain an insight into new developments that are reshaping screening practices, including information and biomedical technology, legal, privacy issues, and the sociology of an unemployable criminal class. Attendees will learn how their companyÂs screening practices compare and gain an overview of industry most used practices.
