L.A. Hospital Fails to Act on Criminal Background Checks

by Desiree Bryant 7/18/2008 3:39:00 PM

A story featured in the L.A. Times (July 16, 2008) should be a wake up call to all employers who do not conduct background checks on current employees.

Background checks need to be conducted before hire and periodically throughout employment. Failure to do so could cause harm to other employees and customers…and the bad publicity could result in the demise of your organization.
