Social Media Background Checks in the US: Compliance Risks vs. Employer Rewards

Region: United States
Date: Thursday, August 10
Time: 2 pm ET | 11 am PT

Presenters: Bianca Calhoun Lager, General Manager, Social Intelligence Corp

The upside of social media background searches is that they can reveal activities and behaviors that may not easily be uncovered elsewhere. Photos and comments from candidates and employees about potentially illegal activity, racism, violence and sexually explicit content can be an indicator for negative workplace behavior. The challenge is knowing what information you can use to making hiring (and firing) decisions without running the risk of discrimination claims.

Join this complimentary webinar to learn:

  • What a thorough social media and online background search includes and how it may help reduce your risk for negligent hiring
  • Who you should consider for a social media background search and why
  • What to include in your social media background screening policy and how it should be communicated
  • How to avoid EEOC violations when using the information available to you on social media
  • Who should conduct your social media screening and why you may want to consider using a third-party vendor
