FCRA Compliance Update For Employers

SKU:WC-1032088

Description:

An ever increasing number of employers are recognizing the benefits that can be derived from conducting background checks on both current and prospective employees.

While background checks can be an effective tool for weeding out questionable employees, legal limitations on how such checks can be performed (and how the resulting data discovered can be used) must be understood or otherwise an employer will find itself defending against its own illegal actions.

In this webinar, you will learn about the chief law covering this topic, the Fair Credit Reporting Act, and review the kinds of background checks that can be conducted by employers. Much of these latter discussions will be focused on the Fair Credit Reporting Act guidelines for conducting criminal background checks previously issued by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and also on the recent trend in many states of placing limits on when criminal background information can be obtained from candidates for employment through enacted 'Ban the Box' laws.

Finally, the increasing use of social media outlets to conduct background checks will also be examined, along with the potential legal risks and pitfalls of utilizing such media outlets to perform background checks.

About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:

Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.

The live versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back at work immediately after the session ends!

And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous times and to share it with others in your office.

Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
