Tiburon, CA (PRWEB) May 14, 2015
Living Well Assisted Living at Home has enlisted the help of Intellicorp Records Services, Inc. to hire new employees. Intellicorp, which is accredited by the National Association of Professional Background Screeners (NAPBS), uses the highest standards of background screening operations to ensure Living Well employs the best staff possible.
“In an ongoing effort to protect Living Well clients from crime and/or abuse, we have always done thorough pre-hiring screenings, says Dr. Doris Bersing, CEO and president of the Marin County-based home care agency.
However, when it comes to employment regulations, California places more restrictions on employers than many others. For example, California employers may not ask applicants about a prior arrest that did not lead to conviction, nor may they ask about an applicant’s referral to or participation in a pretrial or post-trial diversion program. Employers also may not seek or use records relating to these arrests. However, the law allows employers to ask about arrests for which the applicant is awaiting trial (for example, because the applicant is out on bail or has been released on his or her own recognizance pending trial). California also prohibits employers from asking about convictions that have been sealed, expunged or statutorily eradicated. Employers also may not ask about certain older marijuana offenses. However, an employer may ask job-related questions relating to a conviction.
Recruiting the best is one of the challenges of this booming industry, and with the population aging at a fast pace, eldercare services are more in demand than ever. That is why having the support of companies like Intellicorp, Inc., says Dr. Bersing, helps to apply best practices in the eldercare industry to the recruitment of the best staff available, including a thorough criminal and background check, to assure clients and employers peace of mind.
