Today's BLR Teleconference On Hidden Risks In Using Social Networking Internet Sites To Conduct Background Checks

I would like to thank everyone on today's BLR teleconference on the pitfalls on using social networking sites to conduct background checks on employees.  I hope everyone enjoyed the seminar.

As I promised, here are the five general caveats employers should follow when using social networking sites to conduct background checks on employees:
1. The employer and/or its agents conduct the background check themselves;
2. The site is readily accessible to the public;
3. The employer does not need to create a false alias to access the site;
4. The employer does not have to provide any false information to gain access to the site; and
5. The employer does not use the information learned from the site in a discriminatory manner or otherwise prohibited by law.
If any of the listeners to today's teleconference have any follow-up questions or comments, please feel free to email me
