Talk About A Narrow Miss - Alleged Identity Thief Hired (For 6 Hours) As Assistant to HR Director


The sort of thing that would not make your day as an HR Director, to find your newly hired assistant, who would have access to employee and client's personal information had been convicted of misdemeanor impersonation of others. According to the Joplin Globestory that is what happened to the Economic Security Corp. office in Joplin. The good news is, after six hours on her first day when various questions were raised that could not be answered she was let go, before having access to any information. The really scary part, it was not background checking which caused the questions, but another employee spotting her and raising questions about her dealings with an organization unrelated to the employer.
