We will also be closed on Wednesday, January 1 but here and available to assist you during regular office hours on January 2 and 3.

New Year, New Laws. Are You Prepared?

Every year comes with new state laws that affect employers. If you haven’t done it yet, this week is a good time to document how you will comply with upcoming laws that will be in effect where you operate. Backgrounds Online recommends maintaining written hiring and background screening policies and reviewing them at least annually. Have your legal counsel sign off on these policies before they are distributed to everyone on your staff who is involved in the hiring process.

To help you remain aware of employment-related laws, Backgrounds Online provides several educational resources. Follow this blog, subscribe to our Newsletter and visit our State Laws section regularly to learn about new/pending laws and background screening best practices. As your partner in background screening, we remain committed to providing educational materials that supplement your compliance efforts.

Efficient, Compliant Background Checks In 2020

Will your organization be bringing on new employees, contractors or volunteers in 2020? If so, then it is essential to conduct due diligence and run comprehensive background checks before allowing anyone to represent your brand. These reports provide useful information that helps you make informed decisions, create safe workplaces and build strong teams.

Backgrounds Online empowers you to customize background check packages that are perfectly tailored for any position and industry. We also offer tools that allow you to use our services online, via API, through the Applicant Tracking System (ATS) of your choice or however you prefer. As a service-first company, we are always happy to answer your questions, help solve your most complex background screening challenges and provide sample forms and documents that bolster your compliance efforts.

When you’re ready to start screening, please contact us. Outside of our holiday hours, we are available to assist you Monday through Friday from 5am to 6pm PT. Thank you for visiting backgroundsonline.com.
