Ontario’s New Police Record Checks Reform Act: What Happens on November 1st?

Region: Canada
Date: Tuesday, July 10, 2018
Time: 2:00 pm EST | 11 am PST

Presenter: Mark Sward, Vice President Global Privacy, Sterling Talent Solutions

This spring, the Ontario government has passed regulations and proclaimed the Police Record Checks Reform Act (also known as Bill 113) effective November 1, 2018. Since then, there has been a provincial election and a change of government, which may change Ontario’s approach to regulating criminal record checks.

Sterling’s criminal record check service is already compliant with most of the provisions of this law. The one provision that will result in a change to Sterling’s services is Section 12, which requires Sterling to give each candidate the chance to review the results of their criminal record check, and then collect the candidate’s written consent to share those results, before the final results are provided to you.

Join our webinar to find out:

  • What to expect in terms of enforcement of this law
  • How Sterling intends to comply and support your compliance
  • Open questions that remain and how you should prepare for ongoing uncertainty

Volunteers in the Workplace: Safeguarding Your Reputation and Protecting You from Liability Through Background Screening

Region: United States
Date: Thursday, August 30, 2018
Time: 2 pm EST | 11 am PST

Presenter: Pamela Devata-Labor and Employment Partner, Seyfarth Shaw LLP

Most organizations running volunteer programs know they need to screen their volunteers — at the very least those volunteers who are working with vulnerable populations or who have access to sensitive information. Some, though, don’t see background screening as a great need. Think of folks helping along the sidelines of a race. Or those ladling soup at a food bank. But what’s the danger of not running background checks on these individuals? What steps do you need to take to ensure you are not on the hook for a lawsuit and, more importantly, that you are protecting your people and your reputation?

Join this webinar to:

  • Learn best practices for screening volunteers
  • Get real-life examples of risks of liability when volunteers are not properly vetted
  • Understand what an organization might expect going forward after a negative experience, and how they can recover
  • Learn how background checks can minimize your risk and maximize the safety in your workplace

How to Convert Your Volunteers into Donors

Region: United States
Date: Wednesday, September 19, 2018
Time: 2 pm EST | 11 am PST

Presenter: Terry Axelrod, Benevon

Over 90% of people who volunteer for a charitable organization also donate money to causes they care about. And where else would people rather give than to the organizations with which they feel the most connected? Once you shift your thinking to seeing volunteers not just as givers of time, but as potential donors, and seeing every volunteer experience as a potential cultivation contact, your volunteer program will take on a whole new purpose-donor engagement.

In this webinar, well known professional fundraiser and social worker Terry Axelrod joins us to teach you how to:

  • Deeply engage volunteers in your mission
  • Show volunteers the impact of their work
  • Convert volunteers into donors

In this webinar you will learn:

  • What to be prepared for with six months to go until the UK moves into the transition phase of Brexit and the impact on your screening programme
  • Immigration rules and hiring compliance for UK employers
  • What a Right to Work check is and your obligations as an employer
