Attorney Lester Rosen, founder and CEO of Employment Screening Resources (ESR), will present a live webinar for Aurora Training Advantage entitled “Background Checks and Legal Compliance – How to Hire the Best and Stay Out of Court”  on Tuesday, May 17, 2016 from 2:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. ET / 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. PT.

During the webinar, Rosen – author of “The Safe Hiring Manual” – will explain that many companies do not fully understand the laws and regulations that must be complied with when using background checks to screen applicants. Attendees will receive information needed to conduct thorough and compliant background checks. The agenda includes:

  • Compliance with the 2012 Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) Guidance on the use of criminal records.
  • Compliance with the federal Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) that regulates background checks.
  • The impact of state laws on background checks.
  • Laws on credit reports, social media passwords, and offshoring personal information.
  • How to rescind job offers after finding convictions on background checks.
  • Should an employer “ban the box” on an application form?

“Don’t let your company’s background checks turn into a compliance nightmare,” says Rosen, a frequent speaker nationwide on background checks as part of the “ESR Speaks” training program. For more information about this webinar on background checks, visit
