Thorough, compliant background investigations are key to creating a corporate culture based on honesty, integrity, and strong work ethic. Too many times, someone drops the ball…and red flags go unheeded. The results can be disastrous and unfortunately, sometimes deadly! This book provides all the tips, best practices, and warning signs HR Professionals should look for when making hiring decisions. Topics covered include compliance, best practices, litigation trends, and specific recommendations by industry.”
