Symposium participants represent public, private and governmental sectors, including for-profit and non-for-profit organizations. This year’s symposium will present you many opportunities to network with others and to strengthen your HR education and experience.
Mike Coffey, SPHR and owner of Imperative Information Group, will be presenting “The Business Case for Background Checks” on January 16, 2015 from 3:00pm to 4:15pm Central Time. In this presentation, Coffey discusses that most employers recognize the need to conduct a background check on the prospective or even current employees but many are confused by the myriad products available to them and their legal compliance requirements. With increased focus on background check issues from the EEOC, courts, state and local legislators, and plaintiffs' attorneys, HR professionals need to understand what information to request from their background screening partner and how to use it legally. Coffey will cover a handful of topics related to employment background investigations including:
1. The business case for running background checks
2. The efficacy of different background check components
3. Employers' responsibilities under the Fair Credit Reporting Act
Coffey’s presentation will be one of 30 concurrent educational sessions presented by experienced speakers who are industry leaders, attorneys, and HR professionals covering a wide variety of HR topics.
