Background Checks: Best Practices & Legal Compliance

Description:

Does your application or hiring process include criminal background checks? Have you heard about the EEOC's new guidelines, but you don't understand how they fit into your background-check process?

After years of debate, the EEOC this year published controversial new guidance on employers' use of background-check policies and practices. Every employer needs to be in compliance.

Pepsi thought it was. The company believed it was using background checks in a nondiscriminatory way. But the EEOC saw things differently. The result: Pepsi paid $3.2 million to settle an EEOC race-bias charge.

Don't wait for a lawsuit to make sure you're in compliance. It's vital—for your company and your career—to get in line now with the EEOC's Enforcement Guidance on the Consideration of Arrests and Conviction Records.

Join us and you'll discover:

  • The legal risks of criminal checks
  • When, if ever, you can consider arrest records in hiring
  • When (and how) you should ask applicants about their criminal records on applications
  • How to comply with the new EEOC guidance that you perform an "individualized assessment" on applicants screened out by background checks. (Understand the 7 key factors to consider!)
  • The most important takeaways from the new EEOC guidance
  • Practical "best practices" for background-check policies, confidentiality and supervisor training

Best of all, your trainer for this presentation will be an expert on this topic, attorney Stephen Woods. You can also ask him your own questions about this issue during the Q&A portion of the webinar.

Bottom line: The EEOC says these new rules mean employers have no more excuses for mistakes on criminal background checks … and the risks can be huge. Get in compliance now! And, remember, this webinar has been approved for 1.25 hours of HRCI credit.

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.
