Description:

When it comes to hiring new employees, background checks have become standard practice. But do you know what you can and can’t do when it comes to looking into the backgrounds of potential employees?

In California, job applicants have even greater rights regarding background checks. In addition to being covered by the federal Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), California applicants are also covered under a number of “Only in California” laws, including:

  • California Investigative Consumer Reporting Agencies Act (ICRA)
  • California Labor Code
  • Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA)
  • New “ban the box” laws
  • State-specific rules covering credit reports, social media passwords, and offshoring of screening information
California employers also need to be aware of shifting laws that affect background checks, such as legalized marijuana use and required background checks into transportation network drivers.

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has set specific guidelines for background check compliance, making it essential for employers to maintain background check policies that are consistent with business necessity and take precautions to avoid these missteps.

Join us for answers to critical questions on how to legally conduct employee background checks in California. Our presenter, Lester S. Rosen, a skilled California employment attorney and the founder and CEO of Employment Screening Resources®—will provide a roadmap for navigating the rules in California and staying compliant with federal guidelines to avoid costly lawsuits related to background check screening processes.

Learning Objectives:
  • The importance of getting permission and using the proper forms when a background check is being conducted—and the high stakes if you don’t
  • FCRA and EEOC rules to abide by concerning employee background checks
  • How to ensure compliance with ICRA, FEHA, Fair Chance laws, and other California regulations
  • How changing laws about marijuana legalization affect background check policies
  • Whether you have to explain if you decide against hiring someone because of a criminal record—and why
  • How many years back you can go when doing background checks
  • Whether you use social media, such as Facebook, when checking a prospective employee’s background
  • How to establish background check policies that link the decision-making to job descriptions
  • How to avoid “red flag” issues that could result in disparate treatment and disparate impact
  • The importance of individualized assessments to avoid discrimination claims
  • Whether you can ask prospective employees if they have a felony record without the assurance that it won’t necessarily exclude them from being hired

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.
