“Social Media Background Checks”
Does your company ever check social media or run Google searches on candidates? Did you know that your company can run into discrimination issues if you search social media and perhaps find pictures of children, Christmas celebrations, or photos where the applicant is holding an alcoholic beverage? If you run these searches make sure you do so after making a conditional offer of employment, be sure the decision-maker is not the person running the search and consider implement a social media searching policy to create consistent processes as to who is screened and what sorts of information is checked.
