Review The Application of Federal And State Laws To Pre-Employment Screening

To avoid bad hiring decisions, employers have increasingly turned to pre-employment background screening as a risk management tool. No screening program can be conducted without a full understanding of a number of laws, including the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), discrimination and privacy law, the ADA, and a host of state specific rules. In addition to this, the federal EEOC has been involved in background checks and issued a new guidance on criminal records that has the potential to change the way employers hire.  This session by Lester Rosen will review the application of federal and state laws to both pre-employment screening and the investigation of current employees.

Session Highlights:

  • Understand how EEOC considerations impact screening tools such as credit reports, criminal records and social network sites
  • Learn how the federal Fair Credit Reporting Act and similar state laws impacts hiring
  • Review the elements and defenses to negligent hiring lawsuits
  • Understand the dangers of using social media sites to select or recruit applicants
  • Audit your current practices for legal compliance

Who should attend:
This session is appropriate for hiring managers, employers, recruiters, staffing professionals and supervisors.
