Scientists Sue Federal Government and Caltech for NASA's Background
his four decades at the California Institute of Technology's Jet
Propulsion Laboratory, Dennis Byrnes worked on the Apollo
7 spacecraft, set the Galileo probe on a course to Jupiter and
received a NASA Exceptional Engineering Achievement Award. But
because Byrnes won't let federal investigators snoop into intimate
details of his personal life, he could lose his job. Byrnes is
one of 28 Jet Propulsion Lab (JPL) senior scientists and engineers
who today sued NASA, the Department of Commerce and CalTech over
background checks required of all federal employees by the Department
of Homeland Security. "We're talking about the best and brightest
scientists in the world. We're talking about jet propulsion, the
Mars probe, the lunar landing, Galileo, the comet landing project,"
said Dan Stormer of Hadsell & Stormer, the civil rights law
firm representing the scientists. "And they're being asked
to give up their constitutional rights in order to keep their
jobs." At issue is Homeland Security Presidential Directive-12,
issued in 2004 but only recently implemented by NASA. It requires
all federal employees to sign a broad privacy waiver before being
approved for government work.

Passed That Would Create A State Registry Of Emergency Medical
Technicians Awaits Governors’ Signature
would create a state registry of emergency medical technicians
and rules on checking for criminal activity in their pasts. Ambulance
and fire department medics disciplined for patient care problems
and other wrongdoing would be tracked across the state and not
be allowed to float unhindered from one jurisdiction to another
under a last-minute bill that was passed late Tuesday by the California
Legislature. The measure would close two major loopholes in the
oversight of the state's estimated 70,000 emergency medical technicians,
or EMTs. It would establish a centralized registry for EMTs, through
which hundreds of fire departments and ambulance companies across
the state could determine whether an employee had had a previous
medical-care or disciplinary problem. And for the first time,
all prospective rescuers would be required to undergo FBI and
California law enforcement background checks before being hired
by a fire department or private ambulance company. California
is the only state in the nation that has no uniform registry for
EMTs or statewide requirements for criminal background checks.
Rescuers disciplined or fired in one jurisdiction have been able
to get jobs in others, with their new employers unaware of their
previous problems. The bill is being sent to Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's
office. His press office said Wednesday that the governor has
not decided whether he will sign the measure.

Care Company Sued For Negligent Hiring and Not Conducting Background
T-L-C Caregivers, a Pensacola-based
personal care company owned by state Sen. Don Gaetz, his wife
and a third person, is being sued by a man who alleges he was
sexually molested by a caregiver. Jeremy Empie, who has had cerebral
palsy since birth and has little use of his arms or legs, alleges
that former employee Kelly Campbell fondled him in December 2004
while assisting him in the restroom of his home. Empie's attorney,
Todd Ladouceur, claims that Campbell had served four years for
aggravated battery in a Louisiana prison prior to applying for
the caregiver's job. He also alleges that Campbell made it clear
to the people at T-L-C that he was a convicted felon. "There
are multiple statutes that protect people with developmental disabilities,"
Ladouceur said. "There's a whole list of convictions that
disqualify you from doing this type of (caregiver) work. Aggravated
battery is one of those." Ladouceur also contends that companies
like T-L-C are required to conduct state and national background
checks before hiring anyone. The full FDLE background check was
not completed before Campbell was hired, Moore said.

New Foster Care Bill Includes
Stringent Background Checks
Sen. Tom Niehaus recently introduced
Senate Bill 163, a foster care reform bill spurred by an incident
in Clermont County — the Marcus Fiesel case.
The 3-year-old boy’s foster
parents bound him, tied him up and locked him in a closet where
he died while they went to a family reunion in Kentucky for the
weekend. The bill provides some requirements for additional background
checks for foster parents. This would include a Bureau of Criminal
Investigation and Identification background check and other additional
checks that are required.
According SB 163, in part, the list
of offenses that disqualify a person from providing out-of-home
care, being certified as a foster parent, or being approved as
an adoptive parent will be expanded to include the following:
cruelty to animals, permitting child abuse, menacing by stalking,
menacing, soliciting or providing support for act of terrorism,
making terrorist threats, terrorism, identity fraud, inciting
to violence, aggravated riot, ethnic intimidation, or two or more
state OVI or state OVUAC violations committed or substantially
equivalent offenses within the three years immediately preceding
the submission of the person's application. It also allows a public
children services agency to access the otherwise confidential
criminal records checks for prospective out-of-home care providers,
foster caregivers, or adoptive parents.

Employment Outlook Survey Reveals Steady U.S. Hiring Plans for
Fourth Quarter 2007
plan to maintain a stable, yet cautious approach toward hiring
in the final quarter of 2007, according to the seasonally adjusted
results of the latest Manpower Employment Outlook Survey conducted
quarterly by Manpower Inc. "It is not unexpected that U.S.
employers have conservative hiring plans for the fourth quarter,"
said Jeffrey A. Joerres, Chairman & CEO of Manpower Inc. "The
market forces that impact hiring do not conclusively point toward
growth or decline, and that is a likely contributor to the prudent
hiring trends apparent in the survey throughout 2007." Of
the 14,000 U.S. employers surveyed, 27% expect to increase their
workforces during the fourth quarter of 2007, while 9% expect
to trim their payrolls. Fifty-eight percent expect no change in
the hiring pace, and 6% are undecided about their hiring plans.
The strongest fourth quarter hiring prospects reported globally
were in Peru, India, Singapore, Costa Rica, Argentina, Japan,
Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and Hong Kong. Italian employers
again reported the least robust hiring plans globally. Employers
in 11 countries and territories are reporting improved hiring
plans compared to the third quarter, while job prospects are expected
to improve in 14 countries on a year-over-year basis.

New Innovative Web Based Approach to Reference
Checking Solves Company’s Biggest Hiring Dilemma
Reference checking is critical to ensuring that
companies make sound hiring decisions. Despite its accepted importance
most firms find that getting quality reference information remains
a major challenge. Businesses know that the higher the quality
of information that is gathered about a candidate, the better
the hiring decision will be and the likelihood of hiring the right
person. When companies base hiring decisions on high quality data
about candidates, they increase staff retention and productivity,
and reduce legal risks. But the traditional method of checking
references by telephone is time-consuming, inefficient and ineffective.
References are hard to reach and usually unable or unwilling to
provide any critical information about the candidate, or offer
a detailed assessment of their abilities. SkillSurvey provides
a web-based solution that lets businesses quickly and confidentially
verify references and capture consistent, honest, and indepth
information about a candidate’s qualifications and background.
SkillSurvey technology raises employee selection to a whole new
level of productivity, sophistication, ease and accuracy.

Save By Screening Applicants
a Canadian security company, says Canadian companies are
leaving money on the floor because of lax pre-employment
screening. "If you're looking at hiring a person and
there's a moderate amount of training involved, you're looking
at $10,000 to $15,000 in costs for one year," says
Dan Fallows, manager of Garda's pre-employment screening
division. "If you don't have the proper screening in
place and the employee turns out to be a bad hire, you're
basically throwing that money away." "It's hard
to get Canadians to understand it because we don't have
the same historic terrorism or the pressures of brand image,"
says Fallows. He estimates 30 to 40 per cent of Canadian
companies properly screen employees, but he sees that increasing
in the next few years. "As U.S. corporations come north,
you'll see it happen more and more," he said.

Court Protects Worker's Casual Drug
Two competing cases on the controversial
practice of workplace drug testing show a growing schism
in the courts on the validity of such actions, making it
harder for employers to figure out when their practices
are outside the bounds of the law. Both cases deal with
employees who were terminated after testing positive for
marijuana use during pre-employment screening. Neither employee
claimed to be drug dependent, which can be considered a
disability under some provincial human-rights legislation.
The cases also considered Entrop v. Imperial Oil, the leading

Teacher Accused of Child Abuse Stirs Calls for Background Checks
- Parents erupted in anger after discovering that a Math teacher,
entrusted with nurturing their children, violated them in the
worst possible way. An expose on a TV channel showed, Usha Khurana,
a teacher at the government school, shooting pornographic films
at the last school where she worked. Khurana would allegedly offer
private tuition to students and then drug them and allow strangers
to molest them. In most Indian schools there are no background
checks on teachers and references are rarely checked and sometimes
not needed at all. As a formality some schools do check the last
place of employment. But even teachers who do not match the criteria
often get the job. In government schools teachers qualify if they
clear class 12 and have a diploma in education. Experience is
not a criterion for teacher's post.

Is 'Rife' In The Workplace
Members of Parliament were told on Tuesday that
workplace violence is widespread in South Africa. Susan Steinman
of the Workplace Dignity Institute told members of the portfolio
committee on labour that the violence affects public and service
sectors more than the private sector. Steinman said that though
physical abuse is easily recognisable and taken care of in terms
of criminal procedures, emotional abuse is difficult to identify.
"It has a profound impact on the psychological health and
well-being of the victim," she said. "Post-traumatic
stress syndrome is a typical reaction with devastating effects."
She told the committee that research shows that few employers
have policies in place to deal with violence, but when policies
are in place the frequency of workplace violence, both physical
and emotional, reduces drastically by up to three quarters. She
showed that besides physical violence, other types include bullying
or mobbing, verbal abuse, and racial and sexual harassment. It
also affects female more than male employees. She called on the
legislators to broaden the existing codes of labour legislation
to include workplace violence and also sought a service charter
for victims of workplace violence.
Background Checks On Overseas Supply Teachers
53% of education recruitment agencies questioned
in a survey say that minimum legal requirements governing teacher
background checks for recruiting candidates from overseas should
be clarified and enhanced. The REC survey is based on detailed
feedback from specialised recruitment agencies in the education
sector. Commenting on the survey findings, John Dunn, Chair of
the REC’s Education Sector Group, says: “Professional
recruiters in the education sector have welcomed the increasing
focus on safe recruitment since last June’s OFSTED report
and have been actively involved in the Government’s consultation
on the new vetting & barring scheme. “However, it is
essential to ensure that mechanisms are also in place for effectively
checking the suitability of overseas nationals coming to work
in the UK. The Government is aware of this issue and ongoing initiatives
– for example aimed at enhancing the exchange of criminal
records information between EU countries – must deliver
in order to alleviate some of the concerns highlighted in the
