Employment Screening Firm Precise Hire and Employment Law Firm FordHarrison Team Up to Help Companies Understand and Avoid Compliance Violations

Date   Dec 6, 2013

With the recent spate of investigations launched by the Equal Employment Opportunities Commission (EEOC), alleging that numerous companies have been violating the agency's recently adopted policy guidance regarding pre employment background checks, employment screening company Precise Hire wanted to help its clients avoid the agency's cross-hairs so they have teamed up with Labor and Employment law firm FordHarrison LLP.
Precise Hire's clients will have access to FordHarrison's issue experts under a special program that allows a quarterly time allotment at a deeply discounted rate. In most cases, the issue expert will be able to advise the company on steps they can implement to become fully compliant with laws, regulations or policy guidance, avoiding costly investigations and/or potential fines. If the company requires ongoing legal advice for any labor or employment matters, they can pay the law firm a retainer at discounted rates or simply access legal advice when needed by paying the full rates.
"It's a great honor for us to be collaborating with FordHarrison on this new service," said Precise Hire President Mark Lingo. "Making it possible for our clients to access their subject matter experts will help protect and strengthen our clients' companies, giving them a competitive advantage in the market," Lingo said.

"Precise Hire serves companies from all across the United States and many of them do not currently have an employment lawyer on speed dial". "With a national presence, and the most competent employment lawyers in America on our team, this alliance enables us to help more companies in need while advancing Precise Hire's reputation for excellent customer service."
Additionally, Precise Hire will be reposting FordHarrison's issue papers, blogs and other information content on its own website,, which can serve as a quick reference on a variety of labor and employment law issues.
"We're employment screening experts so of course, we want our clients to avoid any compliance violations related to our services, but we also want them to know they can access legal expertise on all things related to labor and employment law," said Lingo. "FordHarrison provides current, relevant information through a variety of resources, and all of this information is now going to be available on our website," he said.
