August 31, 2010, Novato, CA — Employment Screening Resources (ESR), a premier provider of background checks and drug testing based in the San Francisco area, will present an online webinar – “Legal Risks of Social Network Sites and Employee Screening” – with the Northern California HR Association (NCHRA) featuring ESR president and screening expert, Lester Rosen. The online webinar will be held on Friday, September 10, 2010 from 11:00am to 12:30pm Pacific Time and is free for NCHRA members and $49 for non-members, with rates covering an unlimited number of staff at office locations. To register for the online webinar – which is worth 1.5 Continuing Professional Education (CPE) credits – visit http://www.nchra.org/scriptcontent/custom/e-index.cfm?PAGE=WB100111.htm&ion=events.

“Employers and recruiters have discovered a treasure trove of information on potential job applicants in social networking sites such as MySpace, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, and other online sources,” says Rosen, the author of ‘The Safe Hiring Manual – The Complete Guide to Keeping Criminals, Imposters, and Terrorists Out of Your Workplace,” the first comprehensive book on employment screening. “However, the use of these sites can present legal risks, including privacy and discrimination issues.”

The NCHRA, the second largest HR Association in the country, serves an HR community of more than 20,000 and has been advancing organizations through human resources since 1960. Through case studies and viewing Internet sites, webinar participants will see how social networking sites work and recognize the potential legal landmines and practical risks involved. At the conclusion of the webinar “Legal Risks of Social Network Sites and Employee Screening” – which is open to all levels of experience – participants will leave being able to:

• Explain why and how employers, HR and recruiters use the Internet to screen candidates;
• Identify the risks involved if everything on the Web is not fair game;
• Apply discrimination laws and rules to off-duty conduct; and
• Uncover best practices for employers, recruiters, job applicants, and college placement offices.

Speaker Rosen is an attorney at law and a frequent presenter nationwide on pre-employment screening and safe hiring issues. He was the chairperson of the steering committee that founded the National Association of Professional Background Screeners (NAPBS) and served as the first co-chairman.
