Yale University Case Raises Background Screening Questions

In the wake of the tragic case of Yale University graduate student Annie Le’s murder by what would appear to be a fellow research colleague, many people (inside and outside the Yale community) are starting to question the school’s background screening policies and procedures.

Although Yale has a pre-employment screening program as well as intensive security checks of faculty, staff and (when applicable) students, the Annie Le case is likely to be the impetus for additional background screening measures.  At the very least, it opens the door for a dialogue on how to prevent this kind of horrific incident from happening again.
