23rd Annual Employee Vetting & Screening Conference for Employers - London (September)

Date Thursday 27 September 2018
Venue London - Danubius Hotel Regents Park, London NW8 7JT

Please note that this year's annual event is still being researched and written. The agenda is from last year's event and will be updated in due course, with speakers added as they are confirmed.

For two decades BFI has been running the UK's only dedicated pre - employment vetting and screening conference that offers crucial case studies, policy and legal updates as well as excellent networking opportunities. A vital annual update for employers, this conference will provide delegates with the very latest strategies, tools and techniques.

Key issues and concerns for employers:
* Can your recruitment team vet candidates successfully?
* Are you up-to-date with employment law? 
* Can you carry out ongoing checks on employees?
* What are your legal obligations to clients?
* Are all candidates vetted to the same level?
* Can your team recognise fraudulent documents?

The need for an effective employee vetting and screening policy and process for UK organisations has never been more vital. By ensuring your policy is watertight you can help avoid expensive mistakes.  Weaknesses in your employee vetting procedure can leave your organisation open to bad hires, as well as an extensive risk of fraud, theft and data breaches.  Also, a failure to vet within the legal limits set out in discrimination and data protection legislation can also lead to costly litigation and reputational damage.
