Downey, California (PRWEB) April 23, 2014
Employers Choice Online, Inc. (EmployersChoiceOnline.com) the premier nationwide provider of employment background services is pleased to announce the much anticipated release of its new Background Screening Client Orientation, aimed at end-users / human resources generalists. Our new client orientation training will provide employers with the necessary knowledge to effectively process and manage their company’s employment background screening process.
As a value added service to Employers Choice Online clients, this one-hour interactive orientation will enhance client knowledge and awareness in these key areas:
- Navigate through regulatory compliance in connection to employment background checks
- Gain knowledge about employment background screening processes
- Learn the various requirements associated with conducting backgrounds
With the added pressure of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission pursuing companies who are in violation of federal and state discrimination laws, employers must take an active role to effectively screen job applicants. “Employers must ensure a safe and profitable workplace by conducting compliant employment background checks, but must also be thorough and consistent when using such reports to make an employment decision,” says Cody Farzad, Vice President of Employers Choice Online.
The immediate value of this interactive training is the simplicity of navigating through the course and the overall end-user experience. “We want our clients to be confident when ordering employment background checks, and not to be intimidated by the perceived pitfalls associated with compliance and regulations. That is why this client orientation is vital to employers,” said Mr. Farzad.
This is the beginning of a series of client training modules for our Background Screening University library which is only accessible by Employers Choice Online clients. Here is a snapshot of components discussed in this interactive training:
- Establishing a Background Screening Policy
- What you need to know about the FCRA
- Disclosure & Authorization Process
- Federal & State regulatory notices
- Pre-adverse & adverse action process
- County Level Criminal Records vs. Instant criminal databases
- Federal criminal searches vs. state level criminal searches
- Reference “verification” vs. “investigation”
- Drug screening best practices
- Social media search liability
The value that this interactive training provides to Employers Choice Online clients is the confidence gained when conducting background checks specific to all positions identified within the organization. This will screen job applicants while limiting exposure to negligent hiring liability.
