Rancho Santa Margarita, CA (PRWEB)
March 7, 2006 -- APSCREEN the world’s leading full-service Consumer
Reporting Agency since 1980, will unveil a new program to educate
businesses about the necessity of background checks as well
as how small- to mid-sized HR departments can protect themselves
against negligent hiring litigation.
“It’s unfortunate,” says Tom Lawson, CFO of APSCREEN, “that
people don’t realize how one poor hiring decision can ruin their
company’s reputation and bog them down in costly litigation.
All too often our customers come to us after they have had a
bad experience. In my opinion, that’s too late.”
Lawson continues, “Employers lose almost four out of every
five negligent hiring cases with the average jury plaintiff
award being in excess of $1.6 million. Not many companies can
sustain those kinds of losses. It’s my mission to let every
company in Orange County know that they must be proactive when
it comes to their HR Management programs, and that we are doing
everything we can to help them understand the legalities they
face. We have developed an educational program that is free
to the public which we will unveil at two upcoming trade shows.”
The first trade show where APSCREEN will exhibit is the Orange
County’s Largest Mixer. The date for this upcoming event is
Thursday, March 9 from 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm and the Orange County
Fair & Exposition Center, 88 Fair Drive, Costa Mesa, CA 92626.

The next event is the Relationship Building Network (RBN)
Expo scheduled for Tuesday, March 28 from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30
p.m. at the Atrium Hotel, across from the Orange County Airport,
18700 MacArthur Blvd., Irvine, CA. More information about this
event can be located at http://www.rbninfo.com
Businesses are encouraged to come to the APSCREEN booth at
either exhibit and to learn more about how to obtain the educational
information as well as pick up a free report entitled “Employment
Background Checks; What You Need to Know Before You Hire Anyone.”
Companies also need to know that background checks don’t have
to be expensive. It’s critical to let experts show you how to
do the best possible job.
