Employers Find Help For Hiring Risks
The number of lawsuits associated with hiring new employees is increasing at an incredible rate and now accounts for more than one in 10 employment suits in the United States. Is there relief just around the corner?
PeopleWise, LLC , a leading national employment screening company has teamed with Marsh Inc., the world's leading insurance broker and risk advisor, to help businesses minimize risks associated with hiring practices.
Employers can verify an employee's name, aliases, current and previous addresses, social security and telephone numbers in seconds with InstaCheck. For more information, increase the search to HireWise, a report that provides national criminal background checks, driving records, credit histories, verification of previous employment, civil records, and licensing and education information.
Another service, the Labor Law Help System, provides forms to increase the effectiveness of the pre-screening process.
Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
