At this week’s Animal Agriculture Alliance Stakeholders Summit, Washington DC attorney Elliot Belilos offered advice to avoid hiring individuals who apply under false pretenses, and on how to position yourself for recourse in case such an applicant is hired. He outlined several due-diligence steps employers can take during the application and review process. The concern over activists infiltrating businesses with intent to cause economic harm or damage their reputation applies mostly to livestock operations, but I can imagine there is some risk to food-animal veterinary practices as well. We posted a summary of the presentation to Drovers/CattleNetwork.com, titled “Spies, saboteurs and job applications,” which might be of interest to veterinarians and their clients.View All Blogs »
