Rosen, Lester S.

Facts on Demand Press


288 pages




Attorney Rosen, founder of a pre-employment background screening firm, provides a blueprint for evaluating and improving hiring procedures in companies of all sizes. Focusing on assessing all company procedures in the hiring process and establishing legally defensible practices for dealing with potentially problematic applicants, the book offers a 25- step safe hiring audit framework, with chapters on setting written policies, the application and interview processes, checking credentials and criminal records, and other screening tools, such as drug testing, military records, and social networking sites. There are also chapters on implementing the screening process, and screening non-employees such as vendors, independent contractors, and volunteers. About 30 pages of appendices provide checklists, standards, worksheets, and timelines. The book is for employers, business owners, human resources professionals, and hiring managers.
