OWINGS MILLS, MD — October 6, 2010 — Employment Background Investigations, Inc. (EBI) Chief Knowledge Officer, Robert Capwell, will present a session at the 2010 Wisconsin State SHRM Conference in Appleton, Wisconsin on Friday, October 8 at 8:30am entitled “Critical Background Screening Resources — Best Practices and Compliance Mandates for HR Professionals in Wisconsin.”

Capwell’s presentation reviews current state record repositories within Wisconsin’s seventy-two counties, and offers employer best practices on use of that information for employment screening within state mandates. Additional topics include FCRA, education fraud and impact of diploma mills, and use of social media for screening.

“As it pertains to employment screening, it is essential for employers to understand how records are stored and accessed within a specific state, and be knowledgeable on current state mandates around the use of that data since no states have identical structures,” states Richard Kurland, EBI’s President and CEO. “Employer education on federal and state legislation, as well as compliance regulations, will continue to be a priority for our company.”

The Wisconsin SHRM (Society for Human Resource Management) Council represents human resource professionals in the State of Wisconsin, and offers comprehensive information, tools, and other leadership opportunities. The 2010 State Conference “Chart Your Course on an HR Voyage” provides a forum for leaning and the exchange of ideas.
