The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), the agency that enforces federal laws prohibiting employment discrimination, recently voted to approve updated Enforcement Guidance on the Consideration of Arrest and Conviction Records in Employment Decisions Under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The updated EEOC Enforcement Guidance builds on longstanding court decisions and guidance documents that the EEOC has issued in the past and focuses on employment discrimination based on race and national origin.
In the webinar ‘Practical Steps Employers Can Take to Comply with the New EEOC Criminal Guidance’ on Thursday, June 14, 2012, Attorney and safe hiring expert Lester Rosen, Founder and CEO of Employment Screening Resources (ESR) will present a webinar that will go beyond simply repeating the EEOC Guidance language and give “real world” examples and suggestions on what employers should do now to remain in compliance while performing criminal background checks. Topics covered in the webinar by Rosen, author of ‘The Safe Hiring Manual,’ include:
- Longstanding court decisions and existing EEOC Guidance documents
- Employment discrimination based on race and national origin, criminal records, and employer practices
- The differences between arrest and conviction records
- Disparate treatment and disparate impact analysis under Title VII
- Employer defenses the EEOC believes meet the “job related and consistent with business necessity” standard
- Compliance with other federal laws and/or regulations that conflict with Title VI
- State and local laws or regulations preempted by Title VII
- EEOC Guidance best practices for employers
- Links to EEOC Guidance materials and Q & A
An on demand version of the recorded webinar will be made available the following day.
