Screening Unemployed Job Applicants: Pros and Cons to Consider

 

Get the information needed to understand the legal issues associated and benefits associated with screening unemployed job applicants.

Many employers struggle to balance their need for information about potential applicants, given the high costs of even a single "bad hire," with understanding their legal obligations and the risks of using certain available tools to screen job applicants. Unemployed applicants pose unique issues and are more likely to bring a failure to hire discrimination claim. This topic empowers recruiters and HR professionals with the information needed to understand the legal issues, the benefits, and the attendant risks of the most common background screening tools and practices, with particular focus on consideration of unemployed applicants. Explore recent EEOC focus and emerging trends and best practices, along with the growing use of social media and internet tools. Given the growing number of failure to hire claims in today's challenging job market, the increasing frequency of FCRA and EEOC actions related to hiring practices and applicant investigation, failing to understand how to properly use these tools can turn valuable candidate selection information into a source of significant legal exposure for your company.
