ESR Webinar Shows How to Avoid Legal Landmines If Using Social Media Like Facebook and LinkedIn for Employment Screening

Employment Screening Resources (ESR) President, Author, and Speaker Lester Rosen to Educate Employers, Recruiters, and HR Professionals on Proper Use of Social Networking Sites during Background Checks

August 20, 2010, Novato, CA—Employment Screening Resources (ESR), a leading employment screening firm based in the San Francisco area, will present a webinar featuring ESR’s founder and president, Lester Rosen, to educate employers and recruiters on the proper use of popular social media such as Facebook and LinkedIn during background checks.

“Employers and recruiters have discovered a treasure trove of information on potential job applicants in social networking sites such as Facebook and LinkedIn,” says Rosen, a frequent speaker on employment screening issues and the author of “The Safe Hiring Manual – The Complete Guide to Keeping Criminals, Imposters and Terrorists out of the Workplace,” the first comprehensive guide on employment screening for employers. “However, the use of these social media sites can present legal risks, including privacy and discrimination issues. We show employers how to avoid these legal landmines.”

Participants in this webinar – presented with and worth 1.5 HRCI credits – will learn through case studies and viewing internet sites what the privacy and discrimination concerns are when using social media information, the potential legal landmines involved, and what steps their organizations can take to minimize these risks.
