Do you run background checks when placing individuals in direct hire or contract positions? If not, you should highly consider it. Negligent hiring claims are made when there is something in the individual’s history that could have predicted the offense in question. Commonly, negligent hiring lawsuits emerge because of one oversight – neglecting to do background checks. Having a background screening program is vital to help mitigate risk and protect your business from litigation and adverse publicity. It’s in your best interest to conduct a background check on your candidates after an offer has been extended.
