#Social_Media #Candidate Screening: An Overview
Once you have decided to conduct #background_check of your #employees, getting started can be a daunting task.
The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) is one of the two federal agencies that oversees the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) and Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB).
The EEOC enforces federal laws that make it illegal to discriminate against a job #applicant or #employee due to person’s color, religion, race, sex (including #gender identity, #sexual orientation), #pregnancy, national origin, age, disability or genetic information
The Fair Credit Reporting Act also known as FCRA has been designed to protect the privacy of consumer report information.
Sometimes #employers need to conduct #background_checks to find out a #candidate’s credit report,
There are times when #employers have to scrutinize candidate’s information pertaining to #employment, education, professional license, military service and references.
#Criminal_search_services assist employers in finding out the past #criminal #records of the candidate based on county, statewide, national and federal level.
Identity check can provide you information that can be used to be more confident about the candidate you are hiring.
While screening a candidate it is not possible to know whether he/she has been slapped with #drug charges in the past irrespective of whether it is for distribution or possession.
You may come across potentially dangerous applicants like serial sex offenders or violent criminals who might pose a threat to your existing employees.
Pre-employment #background_checks are not carried out to discriminate applicants who had previous criminal records. Rather, it is meant to make sure that the past acts are not serious enough to create problems in future.
Applicants are going to say whatever they can to get the desired job.
Pre-employment #background_screening helps employers get a clear and truthful picture of a candidate irrespective of the information shared by the candidate during the interview process.
Social media has changed the entire dynamics of the recruitment industry since its inception more a decade ago. More and more recruiters are finding social media as a viable medium for screening candidates before hiring them. #socialmedia #socialhiring #socialmediarecruitment
