HR Plus Delivers Made to Order Screening Solutions at SHRM 2012

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwire - Jun 20, 2012) - HR Plus,, a leading provider of comprehensive employment and background screening solutions, and a division of AlliedBarton Security Services, will be exhibiting at the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) Conference and Exposition in Atlanta, GA from June 24th to 27th 2012 at Booth # 2339.

"This important conference of human resources leaders comes at an opportune time as we face new guidelines issued by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) which have important ramifications to employers," said Bill Tate, President, HR Plus. "The EEOC recently released guidance clarifying the agency's long-standing policy on employers' use of criminal background checks in hiring decisions. The report details the EEOC's enforcement of Title VII, the federal law that prohibits discrimination based on factors like race and ethnicity."

"Background screening is a critical part of the hiring process and we are proud to assist businesses in all sectors as they strive to quickly identify and vet candidates while following federal and state guidelines," said Tate. "HR Plus works within the requirements of our clients to develop screening programs that are made to order and specific to their needs so they can make positive hiring decisions for their organization."

HR Plus is committed to hiring veterans, reservists, their families and caregivers, and promoting this important hiring practice. Through their military hiring program, Hire Our Heroes(SM),, HR Plus shares best practices for human resources professionals interested in establishing or expanding a military hiring program.

"We encourage the human resources community to become true partners with military assistance groups to maximize their ability to recruit military personnel, their spouses and care givers, and support those who have sacrificed so much to protect our freedom," said Tate. "These groups are dedicated to putting our nation's military personnel to work, helping employers and veterans alike."
