I am still reading this book and it is pretty interesting. I have learn several things that will come in handy down the road. I believe anyone getting into the field of Private Investigations or just background screening at least needs to read this before starting.

The Background Screening & Investigation book was extremely well written. I was expecting a boring reference manual, but instead found it to be easy and interesting to read, it is an incerdible resource! It also gives a contemporary view of background screening touching on many of the relevant issues of today such as Infinity Screening, Second Chance issues, International Screening and dealing with Sexual Offenders. I definitely recommend it for Security and HR professionals and others involved in the hiring process. Read this book today to avoid being in the news tomorrow for hiring the wrong person!

To employ someone is to trust them to some degree, so how does one know whom to trust? "Background Screening and Investigations: Managing Hiring Risk from the HR and Security Perspectives" is a guide to screening employees before they potentially become a problem for the company. The strengths of a person with an excellent record who appears to be brilliant may be far outweighed by a serious attitude problem or worse. How does a Human Resources official decide when is it safe to hire a convicted felon, or a sexual predator? How far can a company go before breaking the fair opportunity laws? All of these topics are tackled expertly in "Background Screening and Investigations", a must read for any employer who wants to assure a harmonious work environment.

Background Screening and Investigations: Managing Hiring Risk from the HR and Security Perspective not only discusses the issues from a corporate perspective, but from a candidate perspective as well. Targeted for the corporate environment, but with the general public in mind, the book discusses how background screening can negatively impact ex-prisoners, their family and community.

This book is an excellent reference not only for Corporate HR and security, but for any individual interested in how background checks affect the employment status of the prospective employee.

An excellently written book! Great reference point!

I am a Human Resources Professional who loved this book.
It is an excellent guide with tools for understanding the landscape of risk in the Hiring process.
Their broad scope of discussions around National and International safety and risk issues has help me to gain a more global prospective on background screening.
