Introduction From The Editor

This edition of our monthly e-newsletter includes "Another Reason why Background Checks MUST be done", an article discussing how commercial pilots in India have been able to obtain fraudulent pilot’s licenses.

Our legal alert covers proposed legislation in Idaho that would make it easier for the Idaho Board of Education to identify "diploma mills" (fraudulent degree providers).

Finally, our tip of the month explains why employers should conduct a Social Security number address trace on their prospective employees.

Please forward our e-newsletter to friends and colleagues who may benefit from our published information.
