    Program Description:

    The purpose of this presentation is to educate attendees as to the impact of Social Networks in the Employment Screening process.  The presentation is directed to Human Resources professionals who manage recruitment processes so that proper measures may be taken to ensure that the hiring entity is in compliance with federal and state requirements, while mitigating the inherent risk involved by including the review of social networks in the screening process.

    The attendees will learn the following information:

    • How to define “Social Network Background Checks” as outlined by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC)
    • How the information obtained from networking mediums is covered by the FCRA.
    • What recruiters should be aware of prior to initiating a new screening policy.
    • How to craft a compliant screening policy.
    • An examination of court cases from across the country and assessment of their impact upon prospective employers.
    • How social media sites affect hiring managers as well as current employees in the workplace.
