Background Screening: Are you checking a box or really checking?
Being accountable for the safety of your workplace and employees is a weighty responsibility. Background screening staff is critical, but “background check” can mean many different things, and is frequently a very surface-level, problematic check.
We’ll unpack what makes a good background check and share questions to ask screening providers, so that you can be sure you are getting a legally compliant, rigorous check that will help you keep your company safe.

Need to dive into the details of Form I-9? Sterling—a global leader in background and identity services—presents Dave Basham, an expert from the division of the U.S. Citizen and Immigration Services (USCIS) that houses both Form I-9 and E-Verify. We will discuss the current status of Form I-9 and cover a number of important topics, including common mistakes made, how you can complete an I-9 on a new hire before they start working for pay, how to avoid work-related discrimination with your Form I-9 compliance program, copying documents, and what to do if you are missing an I-9.
This will not be a high-level overview—we will roll up our sleeves and dive into critical details. This webinar will enable participants to:
• Conduct employment eligibility verifications correctly
• Avoid committing unfair work-related discriminatory employment practices
• Locate a host of resources to assist in their employment eligibility verification process
• Eliminate “well, I hear I could….” procedures
Even the most seasoned I-9 professionals will walk from this high-energy conversation saying, “I didn’t know that”!
