Year End Review of Employment Background Check Policies

OPENonline 0 1112

What information matters? What processes are important? Although background checks are becoming standard protocol before an applicant is hired, it’s important to ensure absolute diligence in a few key areas.  With the new year around the corner it’s a great time to review the policies and procedures you have in place now and modify them if necessary.

Are Your Employees on Santa's Nice List?

A lot can happen over the course of the year, which is why we encourage our customers to routinely run background checks on employees; once at the time of hire is simply not enough. A periodic re-check can identify situations that may have occurred since the date of hire (like a criminal offense or DUI). In order to maintain a safe work environment and prevent liability issues, it is imperative for employers to establish an annual background screening process for their company.

Background Screening Disclosure Forms Remain Under Fire!

OPENonline 0 1214

This week two lawsuits, involving the language used on a background screening disclosure, were in the news.

One of the recent lawsuits was filed in the Northern District of California where the plaintiff asserted that her prospective employer, Alameda Health, used a disclosure form that contained too much and not enough information.

The other suit in the news this week involved a decision by the Ninth Circuit of Appeals regarding Gloria Mitchell v. Winco Foods, LLC, No. 17-35998, (9th Cir. 2018).  The plaintiff in this case alleged that the forms were not FCRA-compliant.

Do you want to know one of the most common questions we hear in our industry? “Why should I pay to screen my prospective employees?”

OPENonline 0 1727

We advocate screening all prospective employees for a myriad of reasons such as: proving due diligence and mitigating risks of a bad hire; ensuring the candidate doesn’t have a history of bad behavior that would create an unsafe environment for your customers and other employees; and verifying the candidates previous work history and education.
