It is bad enough that when you check into an applicant's background that previous employers will only let you know that the applicant worked for them and their position. Now, EEOC training has changed its position regarding EEOC compliance on how to analyse an individual's criminal background checks, making it more difficult to exclude those with a criminal background. On the other hand, employers have faced costly jury verdicts for negligent hiring when the individual inflicts harm on others.
This webinar will walk you through the laws you should consider in your employment screening services like Title VII, the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Fair Credit Reporting Act, and more!
