     Topic:   Protecting Your Organization 

    Why are so many companies unknowingly hiring criminals even after conducting a background check?

    Do you assume that your pre-employment screening process is thorough enough to protect your organization? The gaps and loopholes in the information available for pre-employment criminal background screening provides savvy criminals a wide open window of opportunity. For example: State Dept of Law Enforcement data only provides "finger-printed offenses" and multiple shoplifting convictions may never show up on the background check (actual example). Learn the details of how to create a thorough screening program while staying within the parameters of the FCRA.
