Many employers are adopting the practice of conducting background checks on potential new employees as part of the hiring process. But what about performing background checks on your current employees?
An article published on Trudiligence.com presents a solid argument for post-employment background screenings including keeping abreast of legal or regulatory compliance and protection against “negligent retention”.
Best practices to consider when conducting background checks on your current staff include:
- They are being considered for a promotion
- They have had a workplace accident (specifically, driving record and/or drug screening)
- They move to a position that requires additional screening (for instance, to a driving position from a non-driving position)
