The session by Rosen at the SHRM 2015 Employment Law and Legislative Conference will cover a number of laws, regulations, and lawsuits, including the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), discrimination and privacy laws, numerous state-specific rules, and the 2012 U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) guidance on criminal records that has the potential to change the way employers hire. Attendees of the session by Rosen at the SHRM 2015 Employment Law and Legislative Conference will receive updates on federal and state laws, lawsuits, and regulations related to pre-employment screening background checks.

However, background checks are increasingly subject to litigation, legislation and regulation. The session is worth 1.50 HR Credit in the competencies of HR Expertise and Business Acumen. The intended audience level is Midlevel. The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM®) 2015 Employment Law and Legislative Conference takes place from Monday, March 23, 2015 to Wednesday, March 25, 2015.
