5/18/2010 Webinar on Web 2.0’s Effect on Employee Screening


Technology has dramatically changed the way employers compete for talent and screen prospective employees, but nothing approaches the impact of social networking. With the widespread use of Facebook, LinkedIn, and other sites comes a new wave of legal liabilities for both recruiters and screeners. Other emerging technology threats include online diploma fraud, employment mills that manufacture work experience, screen scraping, and more.

Jason B. Morris, President & COO of EmployeeScreenIQ will address best practices and policies in order to successfully manage Web 2.0 technologies.

Janet Ford, Senior Vice President of The Work Number, will discuss the value of automated employment verifications in the hiring process and new tools for verifying the identity of job candidates.
