Your background screening policy may be your first and best line of defense in litigation. As we know in other personnel related matters, it’s important to have, and follow, policies and procedures that promote consistency and compliance in the workplace. Documenting your company’s processes for requesting, receiving and evaluating background checks will greatly improve your chances of successfully defending your program and protecting your company from potential multi-million dollar lawsuits.
