Avoiding Hiring Legal Risks with PeopleG2 CEO Chris Dyer

August 19, 2016 at 6:00 AM by William Clarke


PeopleG2 CEO Chris Dyer joins the Hiring On All Cylinders team to chat about the always evolving world of candidate background check screens. The laws governing background checks vary from state to state and change regularly due to court rulings, which makes it a minefield of potential lawsuits for many organizations. Chris and team talk about how talent teams can ensure they stay on the right side of compliance, why criminal records are no longer the black mark they used to be, and why background checks are more about validating people than disqualifying them.

The team also touches on several other topics, including:

  • How Googling candidates can backfire if recruiters aren’t vigilant about their information sources
  • A few simple ways to reduce bias and speed up the hiring process
  • The value of third party background check services for protecting your company, employees, and assets
