Learn the Best Practices for Hiring Employees with Criminal History

Despite advancements in technology, automation, and flexible work arrangements, employers are still struggling to expand their labor pools. That’s why many industries are looking to hire from the largely-untapped, 70 million-strong pool of workers with criminal histories. But most employers don’t know how to expand their recruiting efforts to include this segment—and several states and localities have recruiting regulations on what can and cannot be done.

Get practical guidance on how to successfully hire employees with criminal histories in this webinar by industry expert Melveen Stevenson. Stevenson will walk you through the current labor market trends that will likely affect your decision as an employer, and explain why you need to ensure solid due diligence practices in making hiring decisions. She will bring you up to speed with the new “ban the box” requirements in certain municipalities, and review the best practices to ensure compliance. Plus, she will review the EEOC’s position on using criminal checks in hiring decisions, and explore the key factors to build a balanced and strategic approach to grow and develop talent with “fair chance” practices.

Attending this session will improve your understanding of the labor market, and also help you know how fair chance hiring regulations affect you as an employer—even if you don’t currently need to comply with the municipal regulations. It will enable you to incorporate the necessary processes and actions to practically deal with candidates who have criminal histories.

After attending this webinar, you will be able to build or modify your hiring practices to appropriately deal with applicants with criminal histories. You’ll know how to create a long-term talent acquisition strategy that considers workers with criminal histories, so that your overall workforce contributes strongly to the success of your business.
