Eight out of ten resumes that come across your desk will be embellished if not contain outright lies. A bad hiring decision can lead to costly mistakes by employees, who are not qualified for the job, employees who may steal from your organization, or even negligent hiring claims from third parties. These costs only increase when you end up having to terminate the employee just to have them sue you for wrongful termination.

In this webinar expert speaker, Susan Fahey Desmond will explain how the FCRA affects the background checks of job applicants. She will also discuss FCRA regulation that employers should comply with while conducting background checks to avoid getting legal issues in future.
