Social Media Screening
The Reality: Social Media has fundamentally changed HR. According to Careerbuilder.com, over 45 percent of hiring managers use social media research to validate or supplement information provided on a resume.
The Challenge: The legal pitfalls associated with utilizing social media in the hiring process should not be ignored. For example, a company can face liability issues under federal Jaw if a hiring manager is exposed to a candidate's "protected class" information during the screening process, potentially resulting in allegations of discrimination.
The Solution: FirstPoint Social Media Screening provides employers with the benefits of using social media for employment screening while reducing the legal exposure of conducting these searches internally.
