The Criminal Record Handbook

Total Information Services, Inc.


The book covers criminal records, what they are, what the legal terms mean, how to obtain information from a prospective employee, why you need to do a criminal records check, and some guidelines for the decision-making process. The issue of criminal records and employment is serious: It can be very costly if you hire someone with a criminal record and he causes harm to a third party.

Should you hire someone with a criminal record on a case-by-case basis or should you refuse to hire anyone with a criminal record? That is up to you, the hiring entity, to decide, and not the prospective employee to decide through obfuscation.

This is a good book, attractively laid out and should be part of the reference section of anyone doing background checks, and every human resources manager.
