Wrong hiring and ways of avoiding it

A perfect hire is a boon to any organization. At the other extreme, a bad hire can bring the inverse result to the organization: It can not only impede productivity; it can even result in drawing the organization into legal issues associated with wrong hiring. Problem employees create employee problems, which is why HR professionals need to be aware of what steps to take and what scenarios to avoid if they have to take hiring decisions that are legally defensible. A hire that is weak from the legal perspective is the stepping stone for troubles for the organization.

As if the legal troubles of wrong hiring are not enough; organizations have to also deal with the financial burden it brings. Many organizations have realized that in the absence of the right precautions, there is a near certainty that could end up hiring someone with a wrong background.

Facing embarrassing lawsuits

If an organization’s HR overlooks areas such as the candidate’s criminal record, or fails to take note of a falsified background, all that it is going to see is workplace violence, not to speak of lawsuits for negligent hiring and all the loss of time spent on finding the unsuited person.

Employers have to also face the prospect of inviting lawsuits for initiating screening methods that either violate the law or fail to take into account the changes in civil rights legislation and the new EEOC Guidance on the use of criminal records. This makes the screening process more complex than it ever was. It adds a new layer of woes for the organization, which has to bear the brunt of a wrong decision in hiring.

Get to understand all the aspects of legally compliant hiring practices

The way out is to gain familiarity with legally compliant best practices. This is the only truly proven antidote to not only keep the business productive; but to also make sure the organization will not be taken to court. Want to explore the ways of putting legally compliant hiring practices in place? Then, you need to enroll for a highly engaging and valuable two-day seminar from GlobalCompliancePanel, a leading provider of professional trainings for the areas of regulatory compliance.

At this seminar, Lester S. Rosen, who is CEO and Attorney at Law at Employment Screening Resources, a national background screening company accredited by the National Association of Professional Background Screeners (NAPBS), will be the Director. To gain the benefit of the rich experience Lester brings into hiring best practices, please register for this seminar by visiting http://www.globalcompliancepanel.com/control/globalseminars/~produc... .

Touching upon all aspects of legally safe hiring and background checks

Over these two days, which will see a high level of interactivity, Lester will equip the participants with cutting edge tools, the latest legal developments and practical advice on the challenges of recruiting, background screening and hiring the best people for their organization. All those related to hiring practices, such as Human Resources professionals, Employers, Business Owners, Hiring M... will gain immensely from this session.

This seminar will help participants with the ways of obtaining and utilizing criminal records and background information on job applicants. The Director will update them on recent legal developments, and describe a few case studies which will help them understand the steps employers should take and the mistakes they should avoid. He will also familiarize them with the critical issues relating to hiring, such as the use of social networking sites, new technology and the EEOC approach to the use of criminal records and credit reports. Also taken up for discussion is the topic of why class action lawsuits are rising exponentially against employers and how to effectively comply with the federal Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), as well as the many state laws that are in place for regulating background checks.

The Director will help participants understand with the immediate steps they can take to avoid a bad hire by putting in place a screening policy that withstands legal scrutiny. He will also traverse a variety of topics related to background checks such as:

o  The process employers should use in hiring to minimize the chance of a bad hire

o  The ways of adapting a background screening system

o  The ways of selecting the rightly suited screening partner

o  The most judicious ways of using social media, international background checks and drug testing.
