EmployeeScreenIQ founder Jason B. Morris will speak at the 2011 PIHRA Conference & Exposition in Anaheim, CA at the Anaheim Convention Center on August 31, 2011 11:15 am pst.

Technology has dramatically changed the way companies 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 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. Employers need to develop best practices and policies in order to successfully manage Web 2.0 technologies.

The presentation, entitled “Recruiting and Hiring Liabilities: Protecting Your Organization from the Harmful Effects of Web 2.0,” will educate the HR community about the legal pitfalls of social networking and the related threats of online diploma fraud, employment mills, screen scraping and more. Attendees will learn which social networking sites are most popular with recruiters and applicants, and their impact on employment screening and the hiring process. Morris will also offer advice on how to develop a social media policy and spot the warning signs of diploma and employment mills.
