BOOK REVIEW AND TESTIMONIALS
"The Safe Hiring Manual is a densely informational and comprehensive guide of almost every bit of datum HR departments need to know - and this reviewer cannot think of an iota not addressed for those firms caring enough to conduct due diligence."

”This book is an invaluable resource for any company concerned about potential losses due to fraud. Companies of all sizes should use the techniques and methods in this book as their first line of defense against fraud and embezzlement.”

Association of Certified Fraud Examiners
“… a comprehensive reference for the critically-important area of applicant/employee background checking/verification in this era of privacy protection and legal liability for bad hiring decisions. The chapters on using proper applications and employment history, by themselves, more than justify purchasing this book and using it to guide during every hiring decision.”
