For those of you interested in keeping up with the latest in pre-employment background screening compliance and the laws that affect your use of employee background checks, check out our latest publication, BTW: Your Guide to Staying Out of Hot Water.” This compliance resource has been crafted by our VP of Compliance and General Counsel, Angela Preston and is a must-read for human resources and security professionals.

Our April issue of BTW focuses on the recent discovery that retailers have been using a database with information on internal employee theft. As Angela explains, not all of the information in the database is accurate and can potentially hurt employees, as this database should not be a replacement for an employment background check. Find out why these databases are ineffective in Angela’s post, Modern Day Blacklisting? Retail Databases Under Scrutiny. Our second story features information on the national criminal database and how it relates to employment background screening. Lastly, Angela shared her thoughts from a recent visit to Washington D.C. for the 2013 National Association of Professional Background Screeners (NAPBS) Mid-Year Legislative Conference.
