Employers run the risk of being sued when they fail to conduct background checks on applicants and current employees. Yet employers that conduct background checks face risks, too, such as lawsuits filed by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission alleging that a background check process violates Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, or a civil action instituted by a plaintiff’s attorney alleging violations of the federal Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) or state mini-FCRAs. The growing list of states and cities with “ban the box” laws or related restrictions on preemployment inquiries adds exponentially to an employer’s risk and administrative burden. Join us for a webinar that will offer practical strategies and best practices for conducting background checks that comply with the law.
