Hiring highly qualified people is crucial to every company, and Background Screening and Investigations is an essential guide to succeeding in a turbulent business environment. A crucial part of any hiring process should be employment background screening, pre- and post-hire, which gives hiring personnel a glimpse into a person's past behavior patterns, propensities, and likely future behavior. Background Screening and Investigations describes all aspects of the employment background screening processes - its history and evolution, the imperative for implementing a screening process, and the creation of a comprehensive policy. Nixon and Kerr show how security and human resources professionals can work together to negotiate legal hurdles and make their background screening process successful. * Where do HR and security perspectives differ on hot topics like hiring convicted felons, data protection, and sexual predators? * What does state law allow when screening job candidates? * How should companies deal with emerging issues like international background investigations and continuous (Infinity) screening of current employees?
