As workplace violence, fraud and theft continue to rise, employment screening remains the first step toward prevention.
Columbus, OH (PRWEB) September 09, 2011
OPENonline's Executive Vice President, Angela Bosworth, J.D., will present at the Society of Corporate Compliance and Ethics 10th Annual Compliance and Ethics Institute in Las Vegas, Nevada on September 11 and at the 57th ASIS International Annual Seminar & Exhibits on September 20 in Orlando, Florida.
Both presentations, “Background Checks Done Right- A Legal and Compliance Update to Help Keep you Out of Court,” and “Background Checks Under Fire- A Legal Update,” respectively, will touch on recent enforcement actions filed by the US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), laws targeting the use of credit and criminal information, and “ban the box” initiatives that limit the access to critical applicant information.
“Background screening is a vital part of the hiring process –now more than ever,” Bosworth said. “As workplace violence, fraud and theft continue to rise, employment screening remains the first step toward prevention.”
Attendees of both events will gain expertise in the most critical areas of legal compliance for employers in the background screening process and learn best practices and proactive steps to implement them in order to mitigate risk of legal actions related to background screening and selection process.
