March Handcuff Headlines in brief

This month, compliance is top of mind for many. Both Michael’s and Pizza Hut are in the news for compliance violations, and the FCRA’s litigious trend is unlikely to abate any time soon.

How can employers avoid ending up in the FCRA spotlight? The key is compliance–not simply in the disclosure form (which is important and often done improperly) but also in the sequencing of every step of the application and background checking process.

KRESS released e-Authorize, the electronic wet signature technology that ensures a more compliant background check process, as part of our Invite the Applicant tool. Later this month, KRESS will also release a new adverse action tool that will help employers perform this process correctly as well.

KRESS is committed to providing you with the information you need to make the best decision about all your candidates and employees, and we look forward to working with you in 2015.


Easy. Compliant. Done.
