Criminal background checks are an essential part of any pre-employment screening in order to hire the best and minimize negligent hiring liability. However, there has been a seismic shift in the rules surrounding the use of criminal records. New litigation and governmental regulation has completely reshaped the landscape. Companies that have not adjusted their policies risk lawsuits, including expensive class actions. Creating a compliant use policy is a necessity for any company who performs criminal background checks. Join us as Lester Rosen and Dawn Standerwick of Employment Screening Resources dive deeper into the watch-outs associated with criminal background checks, including EEOC Guidance with real-world examples on what employers should do now to remain in compliance while performing criminal background checks and the rapidly spreading “Ban the Box” civil rights movement.
In addition, numerous states and even cities and counties have passed laws regulating how employers can utilize criminal records in the hiring process. The bottom line is that employers need to be aware of the rapidly changing landscape in order to hire the best and stay out of court. This webinar will introduce employers, hiring managers, Human Resources professionals, staffing professionals and anyone else involved in hiring to the new reality of using criminal records in hiring.
