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.
