On Demand Webinar: Background Checks: Dos and Don’ts

HR Domains (Career GPS): Employee Relations

Canadian HR ReporterPerforming background checks on employees and job candidates can be an important way to protect an employer’s security and determine if someone is right for the job. However, with the amount of information available, it’s easy for an employer to dig a little too deep. Lori Williams of Corporate Inquiry Systems will discuss best practices and legal restrictions on performing various types of background checks.


Topics to be discussed:

  • Resumes and Application forms — What are they hiding? What needs clarification? What’s missing
  • References — How to establish their credibility and key questions to ask to get the information you are looking for
  • Education — It’s only as good as the paper it’s written on – phony diplomas and fake credentials on the rise
  • Criminal Record Checks — Legislation changes and best practices for maintaining due diligence in the workplace


Lori Williams is the director of client services at Corporate Inquiry Systems (CIS) in London, Ont. CIS  provides background check services for employers including: reference checks, education verification, credential validation, credit checks, driving record reports, pre-employment drug testing and graphology. The company also provides informational seminars on topics such as workplace violence awareness, interviewing techniques and improving security.
