Employers and recruiters have discovered a treasure trove of information on potential job applicants by using social networking sites and search engines. However, the unrestricted use of Web 2.0 by employers, human resources professional or recruiter for hiring is not without substantial risks. Just because it is online does not mean it is true or can legally be used. This session will examine the pros and cons of utilizing online data, including what is available online, discrimination issues, the use of legal off-duty conduct, privacy, accuracy and authenticity. The use of these sites also has an impact on recruiters as well. Through case studies, legal decisions and reviewing web sites, Recruiters and HR professionals will see visually how these sites work, what you may find, and the potential legal landmines and practical risks involved. The season will deal with such issues as:
-Special risk factors for Recruiters looking for passive candidates;
--How to insulate yourself from allegations of failure to hire as a result of viewing impermissible information online, such as race, creed, color, ethnicity, sex, marital status, medical condition and similar factors;
--The dangers of utilizing off-duty conduct in recruiting and hiring decisions
-Whether everything on the web is fair game or if there are still privacy rights in the cyber world;
--Dealing with issues of authenticity and accuracy;
--The dangers of NOT doing web searches;
--The issues associated with doing web searches in-house or outsourcing to a background firm
--Best practices to follow if preforming social media checks in-house.
The session will also focus on strategies for getting what you need while minimizing potential complaints for discrimination or invasion of privacy. The session will also uncover how Web 2.0 is used fraudulently, such as fake degrees and phony references.
