Module 2 – Case

Importance of Background Checks
For this case assignment, begin by reading the following two articles concerning background checks:

Meinert, D.. (2011, February). Seeing behind the mask. HRMagazine, 56(2), 31-32,34,36-37.

Winn, E. (Sept.-Oct. 2003) “Employee Crime and Employer Punishment,” Progressive Rentals, 40-43. Retrieved Feb. 20, 2011”>

Discuss the important issues presented in these two articles.

What expert recommendations would you make to private-sector organizations deciding whether or not to conduct investigations or other pre-employment inquiries of employees?

What negative results could happen if background screening isn’t conducted? What does the term “negligent hiring” mean and why might it apply when thorough background screening isn’t conducted?

What specific laws governing the private sector should human resource managers be knowledgeable of concerning screening pre-hires? Why?

Turn in this paper. Paper length:3-4 pages, not counting the cover and reference pages.
