Use of Criminal Convictions in Employment

Moscone Center West, Room 3007, Third Floor

The EEOC has held hearings and issued new policy guidance concerning criminal background checks. Several states have enacted legislation restricting the use of criminal records by employers or are looking at such legislation. The EEOC and the private bar have engaged in significant litigation involving employment decisions affected by criminal background checks. Still, many employers believe that they need to obtain and review criminal records to protect their businesses, employees, and customers, and to avoid claims of negligent hiring or retention. Join our expert panel for a stimulating discussion of the latest status of the law in this area, as well as best practices for employers interested in conducting criminal background checks.
