Webinar: Background Check Industry Trends

Please mark your calendar for Tuesday, November 29th, 2:00pm to 3:00pm ET and sign up today to attend this important and informative FREE webinar on the subject of: Background Check Industry Trends with speaker, Greg Kirsch, Executive Vice President, Operations and Compliance, Applicant Insight.

In recent years, background screening practices have become one of the most litigated and legislated topics facing employers and businesses.  With multifaceted compliance obstacles such as Federal Fair Credit Reporting Act practices, state consumer reporting laws, “Ban-the-Box” legislation, EEOC considerations on criminal history, and use of credit report restrictions, maintaining risk averse practices is more complex than ever.

In August of this year, the SILA Background Check Task Group compiled  a survey to anonymously gather data about the background screening practices of Insurance Carriers, Agencies, and Broker Dealers.  We had nearly 150 organizations respond to this survey.  Greg Kirsch, Executive Vice President, Operations and Compliance of Applicant Insight and the Task Group Chair of the SACS Background Check Task Group will lead us through the survey responses so that we can use this information for best practices improvements and for general historical trending purposes.

Webinar Recording: Initiatives by State Securities Regulators to Protect Senior Investors

 

seniorPlease mark your calendar for Wednesday, October 26th 1:00pm to 2:00pm ET and sign up today to attend this important and informative FREE webinar on the subject of: Initiatives by State Securities Regulators to Protect Senior Investors with the noted expert on the subject, Joseph Brady, Executive Director of the North American Securities Administrators Association, Inc. (NASAA) serving as our speaker.

Statistics show that the population of persons aged 65 and older is growing at a dramatic pace.  This population also controls a significant percentage of personal wealth in the U.S.  These facts coupled with the fact that state securities regulators are investigating more cases involving complaints made by seniors have led NASAA to step up efforts to protect senior investors.  This presentation will cover recent initiatives among state securities regulators to tackle elder financial exploitation including the approval of a model act that provides the securities industry and regulators with new tools to help combat elder financial exploitation.

You will enjoy hearing this important update and your job will be benefited by the pertinent and timely information shared.
