12/16/2013 Nick Fishman at Lunch with DriveThruHR


EmployeeScreenIQ executive vice president, Nick Fishman will be joining the crew of the DriveThruHR internet radio broadcast at 12:00pm CST on Monday, December 16, 2013 to talk employment background checks.


Increased government scrutiny around background screening and the resultant flurry of legislation – and litigation – have left many human resources professionals struggling to maintain compliance. Criminal records, credit checks, resume distortion and social networking are among the serious challenges facing the HR community when conducting background checks – all under the watchful eye of the EEOC, which issued new guidance last year.

EmployeeScreenIQ’s Nick Fishman, EVP and chief marketing officer, offers listeners the latest updates on compliance issues and laws affecting the use of employment background checks as well as screening best practices in this evolving and contentious environment. In addition, background checks may be giving some organizations a false sense of security.  Nick can also instruct listeners on what it means to truly conduct a comprehensive background and criminal records check.
