What’s Your Criminal Background Policy?

Like you, many employers are struggling to hire the best employees in today’s tightening job market. And many have embraced the “ban the box” movement—or Fair Chance Hiring. Have you? This practice upends the traditional idea that you must weed out candidates who have a criminal history before you’ve even evaluated their qualifications.

Of course, hiring employees with criminal backgrounds does come with legal concerns. Gain a better understanding of best practices and legal requirements for hiring employees with criminal records in this information-packed webinar by Human Resources guru Melveen Stevenson. She will walk you through specific guidance to develop or modify your existing hiring processes and expand your scope.

After attending this session, you’ll know how to build a recruiting process that complies with Fair Chance labor laws, including how to properly use criminal background checks. Plus, you’ll understand key factors that go into creating a long-term talent acquisition strategy that includes the largely untapped labor market of workers with criminal records.

  • Understand the current labor market trends affecting your decision to hire workers with criminal histories
  • Ensure solid due diligence in making hiring decisions, so you don’t run afoul of federal, state, and local laws

  • Comply with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s (EEOC’s) requirements on using criminal background checks in your hiring decisions
  • Consider key factors to build a balanced and strategic approach to grow and develop talent in line with fair-chance practices
  • Modify your hiring practices to incorporate the processes and actions needed to deal with candidates who have criminal histories
