Speaker: Mario Pecoraro, President/CEO, Alliance Risk Group.


Presentation Topic: In this presentation, Mario Pecoraro will review how to mitigate risk by adding social media investigations to traditional background investigations and provide HR legislative updates. Social media investigations can uncover red flags that traditional background investigations can miss. These evolving investigations now combine sophisticated software automation with experienced social media analysts to get the full online presence of an applicant or employee. Social media reports can reveal problematic online activity such as unlawful activity, sexually explicit material, racism, discrimination and intolerant behavior. They can even potentially thwart an incident of workplace violence when red flags are caught in time.  Participants will learn how social media hiring reports can be conducted while remaining in compliance with FCRA and EEOC regulations. Additional HR legislative updates will include the status of Ban-the-Box/Fair Chance Act laws and Governor Cuomo’s proposal that would prevent employers from mandating credit checks as a hiring requirement.
