Nightmare for applicants and screening firms
February 2, 2008
Not sure how to describe this one, but a recent headline in the Cleveland Plain Dealer could pose a nightmare for us all. Summit County Cases Proceeded Without Formal Charges. My wife actually found this one this morning reading our edition of the Plain Dealer, this one hits closer to home because we live in Summit County! When the prosecution virtually ignores the Grand Jury and Prosecutions Nolle Prosequi status and charges the individual anyway, where is the Due Process? How in the world would an employment screening company and, or an employer adjudicate the results of a background check when the case should not have been indicted in the first place? Food for thought, I know the answer but its a good starting point for some good old fashioned commenting to this post!! Comment away!
