Employers hold the key to whether or not a prospective employee gets a job. That is a large burden that carries some risks, but proper background screening can reduce potential harm to customers or the company and other future issues. Screening potential employees is critical in having a successful workplace. Failure to screen can result in not just harming customers, but the business as well. The Pennsylvania employee-employer relations lawyers at the Philadelphia law firm of Reiff & Bily have been researching and handling numerous employee-employer cases since 1979.
Screening employees can effectively increase overall productivity as well as reduce theft, drug use, absenteeism, on-the-job injuries, and employee turnover. This can translate into huge savings in short-term company stability and long-term profitability. Failure to do so could result in harming others or costing the business money. No one should have to put his or her trust into someone who does not pass a proper screening test. The whole purpose of screening applicants is to make sure that the job will be done right and to protect customer’s needs.
