Using Criminal Records In Employment Decisions
Webinar: ID# 1001214
About This Course:
The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), the agency that enforces federal laws prohibiting employment discrimination, recently approved an updated Enforcement Guidance on the Consideration of Arrest and Conviction Records in Employment Decisions Under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. This guidance may well have a profound impact on how employers in America hire.
In this training session, attorney and safe hiring expert Lester Rosen, Founder and CEO of Employment Screening Resources, presents an audio conference that goes beyond simply repeating the EEOC Guidance language and gives "real world" examples and suggestions on what employers should do now to remain in compliance while performing criminal background checks.What You'll Learn:
