Resume fraud and misleading information on applications are more common than ever. Applicants who feel they are ready for a position that might not have the credentials will misrepresent information, giving them an advantage over other competition. Such fraud can also lead to internal and external theft or a violent individual in the office. Employers could be held liable for actions made by employees for not considering the most effective screening and hiring practices. Effective pre-employment screening should be a necessity for a successful business. This research proposal considers effective screening practices companies must be aware of, what information is needed, and what to do with it.
