Is Social Media Screening by Employers Considered Stalking??

Is Social Media Screening by Employers Considered Stalking??

We’ve delved into this topic several times in recent months, discussing the possible perils and benefits of social media screening of candidates. The National Law Review posted an informative article this week titled “To Stalk or Not to Stalk….That Is the Question – Using Social Media for Applicant Review.” The focus of the article is social media screening, and they included some great best practice tips when using social media to screen applicants.

At OPENonline we believe that social media background checks need to have full FCRA compliance, which requires reasonable procedures for maximum possible accuracy, and why we are so excited to partner with Social Intelligence offering a fully compliant Social Media Screening solution.  We believe this FCRA compliant solution is another opportunity for OPENonline to provide our customers quality information to facilitate making informed hiring decisions.  Social Intelligence’s commitment is to deliver unique data, legally and with consumer privacy in mind, that adheres to the guidelines of the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), and complies with Federal and State law. With FCRA Certified Analysts, Social Intelligence is the only social media background checking company to be reviewed by the Federal Trade Commission.
