Accu-Screen Webinar Confronts Misinformation about National Criminal Database Search

Complimentary presentation tackles misleading information surrounding the National Criminal Database Search and provides employers the truth about databases searches in the background screening process

Tampa, FL (PRWEB) September 23, 2009 — Accu-Screen Inc. (, an employment background screening firm, will host a free Webinar presentation at 3PM Eastern, Friday, September 25, 2009 titled ‘The Truth about the National Criminal Database Search’ featuring ceo and founder Kevin Connell.

The National Criminal Database Search is also known as the National Criminal Index, the National Criminal File, a Multi-Jurisdictional Criminal Search, a Criminal Super Search and a host of other names. According to the experts at Accu-Screen, many background screening companies improperly market this database search to business and consumers.

“People are selling this database as if it’s the only thing you need to be doing, and it’s wrong” says Kevin Connell of Accu-Screen.

Friday’s Webinar will answer questions about the National Criminal Database Search, including:

  •     What does this search do and what does it not do?
  •     Why do certain well-known background screening companies who sell this search to businesses and consumers not want the truth of this search to be known?
  •     What are the sources of information that make up these national records?

“This practice has gone by too many names and confused too many people,” adds Connell.

This Webinar is part of a continuing series created to provide objective, actionable, and important information about the proper role and practice of background screening in the hiring and employment process.

In celebration of their 15th anniversary, Accu-Screen will provide this educational Webinar free of charge. This one-hour event qualifies for HRCI Continuing Education credits.
