"If you are in charge of talent acquisition or in the business of hiring, this is a must read!

"The breadth and depth of this new book (like the first two versions) impresses. Employment screening is complex; the FCRA, the DPPA, EEOC, 50 states, international applicants—The Safe Hiring Manual helps guide users through these complexities. I would not think about starting or managing a background screening firm without having The Safe Hiring Manual. There is no other resource that comes close. Were I the HR Manager or the head of Security of an employer, the book would be dog-eared".

“The Safe Hiring Manual is the ‘bible’ of background checks. This should be the textbook for anyone in the background screening industry and everyone involved with the human resource function at any company, large or small. First published in 2004 and revised in 2012, the changing world of background checks is due for Les Rosen’s incomparable update. Read it through and then keep it as the ultimate reference guide.”
