Employee Background Screening | Employee Hiring Tool | Employee Verifications

Posted on by Brandon Klein

Using social media for pre-employment background screening is a double-edged sword, a benefit that can also be a liability. Social Intelligence℠ Hiring effectively removes the liability, leaving just the benefit for both employers and job candidates.

Social Intelligence℠ Hiring ignores information that is not allowable in the hiring process, such as the “protected class” characteristics defined by federal anti-discrimination law (race, religion, national origin, age, sex, familial status, sexual orientation, disability status, and other qualities that are not allowed to be used as decision points). Therefore, job candidates are protected from discrimination based on these characteristics and, in turn, employers are protected from charges of discrimination.
