Happy Friday (and happy November)! It’s been a beyond eventful week at EmployeeScreenIQ. If you’ve had a busy week like us, you may have missed what we’ve been talking about on our employment screening blog. And if you’re on the East Coast (like us), more than likely you felt the effects of Frankenstorm AKA Hurricane Sandy, both in business as well with possible court delays on your criminal background checks. Not only was there a hurricane this week, but Halloween happened to be Wednesday, which was also the same day EmployeeScreenIQ released our 4th Annual Background Screening Trends Survey! If you haven’t heard about our annual survey yet, check out the blog post below and learn about an exciting opportunity to win the new iPad Mini. We’ve also posted a few newsworthy blog posts this week, so whatever you may have missed, take a look at our snapshot of this week!

Do you think that a woman who was convicted of manslaughter in 1965 when she was 17 years old for her role in the murder of child should have been fired? What if I told you that this woman had served her time and has not run afoul of the law since? (See More)
