From the Editor's Desk

In this edition of our monthly e-newsletter, our article discusses the 11.5 million people who are victims of identity theft every year. Perpetrators are using consumer information in order to commit these crimes such as names, social security numbers, addresses, driver's license numbers, phone numbers, email addresses, employment history, and financial information.

Our legal alert covers HR Bill 5423, a bill proposed in response to the growing concern businesses have about the enforcement and policy approach adopted by the EEOC, raising questions about whether the best interests of workers and employers are being served.

Finally, our tip of the month addresses a question many employers have: �Are background checks expensive?�

Please forward our e-newsletter to friends and colleagues who may benefit from our published information.
