  • March 6, 2015 - Using Background Checks Wisely:  Few things are more important to employers than hiring the right employees. Making a bad hiring decision can haunt management, other employees and residents. Background checks are required for direct care positions, and can be useful tools in avoiding bad hires and identifying candidates who are most qualified for any position an employer is seeking to fill. However, employers that seek or use such information face an increasing and evolving risk of potential claims. This program will discuss the laws and rulings that can impact an employer’s use of background checks and provide practical guidance on how to obtain useful information while navigating the potential legal risk.
