This Week in Background Checks 12/16/2008
December 18, 2008
Okay, so maybe we haven’t lived up to the expectation of providing you with your fill of weekly recaps on all things related to employment background checks, but let’s face it, TWIB (This Week in Background Checks) works better than TMIB (This Month in Background Checks). That said, let’s jump into highlights from this blog and employeescreen University from the last couple weeks.
There seems to be a recent trend of people doing some very bad things. Go figure. I guess they will be on Santa’s “Naughty List” (and by that, I do not mean hotties like Heidi Klum. That’s another list). BTW, can anyone lend me some money to buy a seat in the U.S. Senate?
- CEO Bilks Investors Out of $340 million– This now seems petty larceny compared to Mr. Ponzi himself, Bernie Madoff
- Employees Arrested for Defrauding Hewitt & Associates– A reminder that no good deed goes unpunished
- Veteran Charged with Violation of the Stolen Valor Act– Is there a more disgraceful act?
- Update on E-Verify– All federal contractors must utilize some form of the Electronic Employment Eligibility process beginning on January 1, 2009. (Sorry, no snarky comments on this one.)
