Employers Choice Screening’s new interactive Background Screening Client Orientation training will allow users to successfully navigate through the compliance and regulation issues pertaining to employment background checks. This “first of its kind” training includes instructional videos, and quizzes. Successful completion of the course will generate a certificate.

As a value-added service to Employers Choice Screening clients, this one-hour interactive orientation will enhance client knowledge and awareness in these key areas:

  • Navigating through regulatory compliance in connection to employment background checks
  • Gaining knowledge about employment background screening processes
  • Learning the various requirements associated with conducting backgrounds

With the added pressure from the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) pursuing companies who are in violation of federal and state discrimination laws, employers must take an active role in effectively screening job applicants. The immediate value of this interactive training is the simplicity of navigating through the course and the overall end-user experience.

“Employers must ensure a safe and profitable workplace by conducting compliant employment background checks, but must also be thorough and consistent when using such reports to make an employment decision. We want our clients to be confident when ordering employment background checks, and not to be intimidated by the perceived pitfalls associated with compliance and regulations. That is why this Background Screening Client Orientation training is vital to employers.” – Cody Farzad, Vice President of Employers Choice Screening

This is the beginning of a series of client training modules for our Background Screening University Library, which is only accessible to Employers Choice Screening clients. These are the components that will be discussed in this interactive training:

  • Establishing a background screening policy
  • What you need to know about the FCRA
  • Disclosure and authorization process
  • Federal and state regulatory notices
  • Pre-adverse and adverse action process
  • County level criminal records vs. Instant criminal databases
  • Federal criminal searches vs. State level criminal searches
  • Reference “verification” vs. “Investigation”
  • Drug screening best practices
  • Social media search liability

The value that this Background Screening Client Orientation training provides to Employers Choice Screening clients is the confidence gained when conducting background checks specific to every position identified within the organization. This will screen job applicants while limiting exposure to negligent hiring liability.
