Background Checks and Legal Compliance Discussed in Live 90 Minute Audio Conference on October 30

Attorney Lester S. Rosen, Founder and CEO Employment Screening Resources® (ESR), will present a live 90 minute Audio Conference ‘Background Checks and Legal Compliance: Avoiding Legal Hot Water’ with Aurora Training Advantage from 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM Eastern on Wednesday, October 30, 2013.

“Most companies use background checks to screen applicants but some may not fully understand the many laws and regulations that they must comply with,” says Rosen, author of ‘The Safe Hiring Manual.’ “Don’t let your company’s background check policies turn into a compliance nightmare.”

In the Audio Conference, Rosen will give participants all of the information needed to conduct thorough, effective, and compliant background checks. Attendees will learn:

  • Compliance with 2012 Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) Guidance on the use of criminal records.
  • Compliance with federal Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) and State Rules.
  • Compliance with a number of states passing laws about credit reports as well as social media checks.
  • Pre-employment background check compliance.
  • How to rescind an offer after a background check comes back with an arrest or a conviction.
  • The EEOC’s “three-factor test” when considering an applicant with a criminal history.
  • Understanding how the EEOC views arrests vs. convictions.
  • Handling an arrest, but no conviction.
  • Does your state prohibit discrimination based on arrest records?
  • What to do when an employee has to do jail time for his second DUI.
  • Keeping the workplace safe by screening out bad hires vs. discriminating against applicants.
  • The keys to applicant screening: company policies and job descriptions.
