ESR 50 State Compliance Guide

ESR 50 State Compliance Guide – For ESR Clients Only

Employment Screening Resources (ESR) offers clients a 50 State Compliance Guide that is an easy-to–use solution for navigating the myriad of state laws affecting employers who use criminal records in making employment decisions. The 50 Compliance Guide was prepared and is maintained by Attorney Larry Henry, a nationally recognized Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) and state employment law subject matter expert.

The guide is designed to help understand and comply with the myriad of state laws that go beyond the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA). Restrictions, best practices, practical tips, and ongoing notifications are presented in plain English in a simple to use format.

ESR makes this guide available to our clients at no cost as an enhancement to our ESR Assured Compliance® program. Although prepared by an employment law attorney, the guide is for educational purposes only and should not be construed as legal advice, but rather as a valuable aid to help you and your counsel reach informed business decisions.

ESR urges clients to consult with an attorney regarding their screening program to ensure each company’s unique requirements are found to be compliant. Since legislation surrounding hiring and screening practices can change, we recommend your screening policy undergo a periodic legal review.
