Employment Screening Resources and Fama to Present Webinar on Best Practices for Social Media Backgr

Employment Screening Resources® (ESR), a global background check provider, will present a live webinar entitled “Top 5 Best Practices for Social Media Background Checks” hosted by Ben Mones, CEO and Founder of leading social media screening provider Fama, on Thursday, May 18, 2017, from 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM PDT.

The webinar will help employers stay compliant and ahead of the curve when screening job applicants online. Mones will explain how to comply with the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) that regulates background checks and avoid using inconsistent social media screening criteria online to unintentionally discriminate against certain groups in violation of U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) Guidance.

“Who you are online is very indicative – if not equally indicative – of who you are in the offline world,” Mones stated in an interview with TechCrunch. “This is what people are just starting to come to terms with.” Mones said Fama customers can identify the “social media red flags” that they want to screen for – such as drug use, sexual content, bigotry, or profanity – by analyzing text, images, and video online.
