Read Frequently Asked Questions

Why Should You Attend:

Hiring the right people is one of the most important decisions made in organizations today. When you are responsible for assuring the best hires, it is essential for you to perform due diligence after the interview process and the favorite candidates are selected. Candidates may interview very well, appear to be very competent, and have an excellent history on paper, but it is always important to verify that they are authentic. Some candidates who excel in interviewing skills can vastly exaggerate their competencies or past responsibilities and cover up any negative information about their past employment history.

The webinar will give you the tools and processes to help you get the information you need to verify a candidate’s qualifications in experience, education, character and work ethics as well as meeting any other requirements you have for the position. “Name, rank, and serial number” is not sufficient in discovering whether someone can do the job. We will cover what kinds of background checks are appropriate for different jobs and the best techniques to obtain the needed information as well as guidelines to follow in doing reference and background checks to assure being in compliance with employment law. We will also cover methods and policies on drug and alcohol testing.

Areas Covered in the Seminar:

  • Selecting references and obtaining permission to conduct reference checks.
  • What should be included on your employment application?
  • Verbal and written references: asking the right questions.
  • How to gain additional information if the company refuses to give information requested?
  • Proving dates of hire and salary when a company is no longer in business.
  • Selecting appropriate types of background screening.
  • Mandatory background checks.
  • What background checks are illegal and ill-advised: the controversies over credit and criminal checks?
  • Verifying education and college transcripts.
  • Complying with legal requirements of references and background checks.
  • Drug and Alcohol policies and drug and alcohol tests.
