As Technology for Screening Gets Better; Responsibility For Bad Hring Gets Stricter
by Michael Fox
Or at least that's the pitch of Dean Schabner's ABC News story. The money quote comes from who else, a vendor of criminal screening services:
""It's scary simple," suggested Timothy Dimoff, president of Akron, Ohio-based SACS Consulting & Investigative Services, Inc., and a retired law enforcement detective. "[C]ourts are recognizing that it's not hard to check out. … The solution is there. If you want to go back and say they didn't have time to check on an applicant's background, they didn't know the technology existed — the courts are eating them up."
Notwithstanding his obvious bias, he makes a good point.
