Employers have the right to determine who should-and shouldn't get hired, don't they? Well, yes-and no. Currently, the EEOC has been heavily scrutinizing employer's background check processes. In recent legal cases, some employers were sued for discrimination in their hiring practices-simply due to the way they were conducting pre-employment background checks.
It happens more frequently today: a background check on an applicant comes back with "scary stuff", like a felony conviction for assault and battery, or it may list an arrest-but then there are no further enlisted information. Questions such as - what are the legal requirements, what should you do, or what if you find out that a current employee got arrested and has a pending court date - will inevitably crop up.
In this informative webinar by expert speaker Natalie Ivey, you will gain the knowledge of important laws regarding hiring employees with a criminal history, how to properly assess a candidate to avoid running afoul of anti-discrimination laws, learn best practices in applicant screening to avoid violating the FCRA--and how to handle situations in which current employees have had a brush with the law.
