Employment Screening Laws

EmployeeScreenIQ president, Jason Morris, is a frequent speaker at industry events on background checks, global screening, security, recruitment and staffing and he often discusses best practice initiatives as they relate to organizational pre-employment screening programs. Tomorrow, Thursday April 18th, 11:00-12:00 ET, Jason will present, Caution Ahead: Navigating the New HR Minefield of Recruiting and Screening Laws for HR.com’s virtual conference, Online Staffing and Sourcing. It’s not too late to register for this free event, so take a few moments to sign up today.

Through an engaging, interactive audiovisual presentation that includes the very latest news of the day, Morris will cover the influx of state and federal laws facing employers—including increased EEOC scrutiny of hiring practices and new but untested screening tools such as social media. The media and analysts have also sustained a steady drumbeat that accuses employers of over inflating the importance of background checks when negative results are revealed. The presentation will guide organizations and HR professionals in safely navigating the stormy legal waters by keeping informed and taking the proper steps to ensure compliance.

The presentation will cover the following questions, assisting HR professionals to gain an understanding of the latest issues in recruiting and background screening laws:

  • Should you use social media sites to source and screen candidates? If so, how can you do so without running afoul of the law?
  • How do the EEOC’s recent actions affect the use of criminal records and credit reports?
  • How do “Ban the Box” and other state reporting laws affect your ability to conduct a comprehensive background check?
