Podcast on Employment Background Checks for Your Contingent Workforce
September 15, 2010
EmployeenScreenIQ recently published a white paper on the need for organizations to ensure employment background checks are being conducted on their contingent workforce. “Screening Your Contingent Workforce: What HR Professionals Should Know” examines the dangers of hiring contract workers without performing the same background checks as on permanent employees.
I sat down with HRMarketer’s Elrond Lawrence earlier this week to talk about some of the key issues addressed in our study. Topics include the following:
- Why screening the contingent workforce is so important
- How companies can work with contracted staffing agencies to ensure consistency and compliance
- How organizations can protect themselves from from claims of hiring discrimination
