Introduction from the Editor

This edition of our monthly e-newsletter includes an article explaining the importance of applicant assessment testing. Assessment testing enables employers to identify the strengths and weaknesses of potential new hires, resulting in efficient job placement and lower turnover.

Our legal alert covers the Internet Dating Safety Act HB 4083, which would require online dating sites to clearly and conspicuously disclose to all members that they conduct criminal backgrounds checks  as well as require sites to perform criminal and sex offender record searches on its members.

Finally, our tip of the month discusses the difference between nationwide sex offender registry searches and statewide sex offender registry searches.

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