 webinar-1

Written By ESR News Blog Editor Thomas Ahearn

Since numerous concerns are raised when employers learn an employee has been arrested, Attorney Lester Rosen, founder and CEO of Employment Screening Resources® (ESR), will present a live webinar for Aurora Training Advantage entitled ‘Employees That Have Been Charged with a Crime’ on Tuesday, August 30, 2016, from 2:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. EDT.  To register for the webinar, which is worth 1.5 HR Certification Institute (HRCI) credits, visit http://auroratrainingadvantage.com/webinars/employees-charged-crime/.

“Employers are concerned both with protecting their business, and at the same time, being fair to the employee,” says Rosen, author of ‘The Safe Hiring Manual,’ the first comprehensive guide to background checks for employment. “In addition, employers need to make immediate decisions on how to deal with the issues raised.  Given the current legal environment surrounding the use of criminal information, employers also need to make sure they are not stepping on any legal landmines.”

In this interactive session led by Rosen, employers will learn what practical and legal steps they should take – and steps to avoid as well – in response to the arrest of an employee.  Topics covered will include an overview of how the criminal justice system works and what employers can expect to encounter, as well as the application of the federal Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) and the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) guidance on the use of criminal records by employers.

Attendees of the webinar will learn which laws may affect employers and what should be in a company’s policy and approach to this situation of an employee being arrested.  The information will also be useful to issues surrounding the effective and legal use of criminal background checks before someone is hired in the first place.  To register for the webinar ‘Employees That Have Been Charged with a Crime,’ please visit http://auroratrainingadvantage.com/webinars/employees-charged-crime/.
