The Criminal Records Manual
Facts on Demand Press ISBN: 1-889150-43-6 448 pages
If you have people who do pre-employment background investigations – or even post-hiring screening – they should have this book.
Besides having information on how to access records, it has extensive information on the legal issues, with the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) with FCRA conflicts and interactions with state laws, with Title VII, and with a host of other issues that frequently trip the unwary.
This book is well-used by the staff at Financial Examinations & Evaluations, and highly recommended for those whose companies prudently have people on staff to do necessary screening.
