This Week in Background Checks: 8/11-15/2008

Nick Fishman

Another summer work week is in the books, so that only means one thing: It’s time for TWIB Notes (This Week in Background Checks).  Okay fine, it’s also a sign that if you haven’t noticed the summer is quickly creeping away that you better get out and enjoy it while there’s still time. With that in mind, I’m going short and sweet with this installment.

From our Blog:

Trooper Investigated For Running Unauthorized Background Checks – Can you believe someone would abuse their privleges with a state criminal records database?  Okay, don’t answer that.

Ten Tall Tales Told on a Resume (from CareerBuilder)- Seems lying on your resume is all the rage these days!

Background Checks at the Olympics – A young and good looking man’s (me) recollections of the Centennial Olympic Park Bombing.

From employeescreen University:

Article by employeescreenIQ’s Rob Thomson on how employers should handle adverse information found on background checks

Next week.  My now-annual lamenting of my oldest daughter starting school (1st grade now.  I’m sure I have another rant in me on the background checks performed in our schools).  We also will be releasing our latest version of The Verifier, our Quarterly Newsletter (click here for a sneak peek).
