This webinar training will explain the Federal Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) and how it affects the pre-screening and investigation process of current employees. It will discuss the regulations and law that employers should comply with while hiring new employees to avoid getting into legal issues in future.

Why Should You Attend:

The federal Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) regulates how employers conduct pre-employment screening and investigations of current employees.

Firms cannot afford to be sidetracked by employee problems such as workplace violence, theft, false resumes, embezzlement, harassment or trumped-up injury claims.
