Course description

This webinar provides an overview of the use of background checks during the hiring process – what are they typically and why are they used by employers. The Presentation will also discuss the potential discriminatory disparate impact the use of criminal background checks may have on applicant pools. New trends in the enforcement of anti-discrimination laws, particularly by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), and ways for employers to stay out of trouble when utilizing criminal background checks will also be covered in this session.

It is important to learn what the Recent Changes in EEOC Guidelines mean to you, today, and how they will affect your hiring in the future. The webinar provides an overview of the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA). The speaker examines how FCRA may apply to background checks of applicants and employees, the notice requirements of FCRA, common pitfalls to avoid and legal liability for failure to comply. Finally, the webinar will also discuss FCRA best practices.
