(PRWEB) April 5, 2011
Dr. David Arnold, General Counsel for Wonderlic, will co-present at the Retail Industry Leaders Association (RILA) Loss Prevention, Auditing & Safety Conference in a session entitled, "Screening Job Applicants for Dishonesty and Counterproductive Behaviors." This presentation by Dr. Arnold and Gary Hilt, Vice President, Loss Prevention and Risk Management, Blain's Farm and Fleet, will cover the strengths and weaknesses of hiring processes like reference checks, criminal background checks, credit checks, interviews, drug testing and written integrity tests.
"I'm excited to be able to discuss these hiring processes at the RILA Conference," shares Dr. Arnold. "Each tool should be considered carefully when it to comes its utility and potential discriminatory impact. For example, legal scrutiny of criminal background checks and credit checks is on the rise, while the use of integrity tests continues to grow due to a favorable legal and legislative environment for validated assessments. This is critical information for the Loss Prevention Community to consider."
