Abuse Prevention Systems: Skillful Screening Seminar - Seattle, WA
Thu, April 27, 2017, 8:30 AM – 11:30 AM PDT
Philadelphia Insurance Companies (PHLY) is proud to partner with Abuse Prevention Systems for a three (3) hour Effective Employment Skillful Screening Seminar.
An effective screening process is meant to address areas of risk, including the risk of hiring an applicant whose sexual motives are inappropriate. Criminal background checks alone will not protect children from sexual abuse. Statistically, less than 10 percent of sexual offenders are ever criminally prosecuted, because two out of three children don't report abuse until years later, if ever. As a result, nearly 90 percent of offenders have no past criminal conviction to check.
