Background Screening: The Deep Dive into Criminal Records
by Debra Keller, Total Insight Screening, of Dover, FL
Do you know what information you’re really receiving when you run a background check? Do you depend on a screening firm who tells you ‘you’re getting it all’ (whatever ‘all’ is)?
Most employers are somewhat familiar with ‘running packages’ but haven’t been told exactly what records and data sources those ‘packages’ or reports are searching, let alone how often the record sources are updated. Unfortunately for employers, this information is critical to receiving a “comprehensive” and compliant background check.
In this, Deb’s newest installment in her background screening educational series, she covers criminal record data, where it comes from, how accurate it really is, how often it’s updated, automation in county and national reports, state reports (when & where to run them), Federal reports (yes, they’re required for the banking industry!) and much more! A must attend session for HR Professionals of all levels!
Participants in this session will learn
1. How data is received, compiled and reported and the difference in sources (‘fluff’ data vs. usable data.)
2. Which background screening reports you really need and the risks associated with running each. This includes what creates a ‘comprehensive’ report and how that can vary by state.
3. Risks of ‘automated data.’
Background Screening: The Deep Dive into Criminal Records has been submitted to SHRM and HRCI. Approvals pending.
