As part of the American Hospital Association's Hospital Against Violence initiative, join Hospitals in Pursuit of Excellence and the Association for Community Health Improvement for their upcoming webinar on how hospitals and health systems can prevent human trafficking. Among many forms of violence, human trafficking, a modern form of slavery, is a global problem and is increasingly being recognized as a public health concern in the United States. Health care organizations and health care professionals can help identify and support victims of human trafficking by being alert to the problem and realizing patients they are treating may be victims. By collaborating with public agencies and community-based organizations, health care organizations can raise awareness in their own communities and advocate for public policies that address human trafficking. As anchor institutions, hospitals can leverage their influence by being aware of the "supply side" of human trafficking globally.
 
This webinar will explore the problem of human trafficking, identify approaches health care organizations can adopt to address human trafficking and provide case examples of hospitals leading the field in human trafficking prevention.

 Learning Objectives:

  • Describe the problem and scope of human trafficking in the U.S.
  • Identify approaches health care organizations can deploy to recognize human trafficking victims and tactics to help them.
  • Understand how to leverage a multifaceted approach to human trafficking prevention that addresses the issue using strategies for prevention and mitigation in addition to victim response.
Speakers:
  • Roy Ahn, Associate Director, Public Health, NORC at the University of Chicago
  • Laura Krausa, System Director, Advocacy, Catholic Health Initiatives
  • Wendy Macias-Konstantopoulos, MD, Director, Human Trafficking Initiative, Department of Emergency Medicine’s Division of Global Health and Human Rights, Massachusetts General Hospital

Background checks are a common - and often required - element of any health care organization's hiring process. However, a tidal wave of new laws and regulations in the industry, and an onslaught of FCRA violations create uncertainty for many employers on how to ensure that their hiring processes are in compliance.
  
In this webinar, Certiphi Screening’s general counsel Alexander Erlam and associate general counsel/director of compliance Sadeq Khan explore five of the most common compliance mistakes employers make during the hiring process regarding background screening. Examples include missed red flags on the job application; “Ban the Box” and the criminal history question; FCRA disclosure and authorization forms; employment drug screening; and complying with FCRA requirements around the adverse action process.

Learning Objectives:

  • Five common compliance mistakes made during the hiring process
  • Examples of litigation and recent cases related to these mistakes
  • How to identify current compliance gaps and take away specific examples of ways to change your processes to make you more compliant
Speakers:
  • N. Alexander Erlam, General Counsel, Certiphi Screening, Inc.
