Some "hot topics" in background screening
By Danny Davila, Executive Director, GroupOne
I was recently asked to put together some "hot topics" to consider when evaluating the risks of sharing consumer/background reports among employers in their respective networks. The NAPBS Best Practice Committee is expected to share its collected content for industry-wide discussion. From where I sit, some of these topics include the troubling emergence of healthcare employees with a history of patient abuse finding ways to get hired at other healthcare facilities. Oftentimes, this is due to administrative delays in reporting adverse actions to consumer reporting agencies. Employees can take advantage of this "down time." A revamped process could provide value to HR leaders.
