What it’s about Most recruiters and HR professionals know that pre-employment background screening is a must-have step in any interview process. But what about after the candidate gets the job, how long is the background check valid for? After the candidate becomes an employee, and depending on the size of the company, they will fall…

Screening internal applicants is a best practice for your interview process. Having a policy in place that outlines how and why you re-screen your employees when they move within the company will eliminate any confusion from internal applicants and show external applicants that you aren’t discriminating against them.

The Federal Trade Commission’s (FTC) Disposal Rule loosely outlines what needs to happen to any consumer report that your company gains access to, and the sensitive information derived from those reports.
