Lawfully Conducting Background Checks
On April 25, 2012, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission released a detailed Enforcement Guidance, addressing how the improper use of arrest and conviction records may violate Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The National Labor Relations Board and recent legal actions have also cast doubt on the use of social media as a background resource. The Fair Credit Reporting Act continues to demand strict compliance with its background check notification requirements. So with all that good news, why even conduct background checks? Well, not so fast. Employers have to balance all of these regulations with the overwhelming need to protect its personnel, customers and workforce assets from potentially dangerous and dishonest individuals. And add to the mix the long-established precedent that failure to engage in due diligence by conducting adequate background checks exposes an organization to significant negligent hire liability. So are we having fun yet?
Patricia Latham Ball, Esq. will sift through the regulatory madness and help guide employers through the compliance issues while empowering them with lawful strategies to conduct background checks and protect their workforce.
