Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) September 1, 2009
Employers Group, national leader in human resources expertise, knowledge, and advocacy, and Kroll, the world’s leading risk consulting company, are pleased to announce a relationship that will make Kroll’s Background Screening division the exclusive provider of background checks to Employers Group’s more than 3,000 member companies. Additionally, the partnership will help Employers Group members more easily perform employment eligibility verifications by better understanding and meeting evolving E-Verify requirements. Employers Group members can implement Kroll’s solutions to simplify and improve the efficiency of their Form I-9 and E-Verify processes.
The partnership is particularly timely in light of the Department of Homeland Security’s new initiative to audit 652 businesses nationwide to ensure compliance with Form I-9 procedures and crack down on the hiring of undocumented workers. With penalties for even clerical mistakes ranging from $100 to $1,100 per I-9 Form, Employers Group members will benefit from the error-detecting and automation offered by Kroll.
Kroll’s Background Screening division is the industry expert and offers a wide range of employment background screening services that will be made available to members at a special Employers Group rate. Some of the available services include:
- Form I-9 and E-Verify services
- Criminal record searches
- SSN trace and address locator
- Employment and education verifications
