What types of employment screening are allowed?

Hiring an employee is one of the most important tasks assigned to employers; quality employment prescreening minimizes legal and financial risks to a company, and makes it less likely that an company will be stuck with a bad apple, who can ruin a working environment. A bad hire can ultimately cost a company thousands of dollars in training, severance pay, wasted training time, loss of productivity, and impact on employee morale. Important as employment prescreening is, however, screening options have their own set of legal ramifications.
