Instructor: Lester S Rosen
Product ID: 704554
  • Duration: 75 Min
Employers have long recognized that conducting due diligence on new hires is a mission critical task. This training program will focus on why firms cannot afford to ignore employee-related problems such as workplace violence, theft, false resumes, embezzlement, harassment or trumped-up injury claims. Employers can be the subject of lawsuits for negligent hiring if they hire someone that they should have known, through the exercise of due diligence, was dangerous, unfit or unqualified.
