Carrying out pre-employment checks is required to meet legal requirements, but also to ensure that the employer is recruiting the very best person for the job. Confusion can arise about what checks must be carried out, which are optional and what to do if the checks do not produce satisfactory information.

During this course lecturer Kathy Daniels will look at the range of checks that could be carried out, the legal responsibilities and the process for managing the checks. Kathy will also offer useful hints and tips which viewers can use in practice.
