Caution Ahead: Navigating the New HR Minefield of Recruiting and Screening Laws

Every day brings news of the newest law-or lawsuit-involving employers’ use of background checks. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has intensified scrutiny of hiring practices, exposing employers to greater risk of discrimination lawsuits. While employment screening is critical to reducing hiring mistakes, organizations that fail to keep up with this litigation and legislation could face legal dangers. Morris examines the ever-changing legal landscape that employers operate against and offer attendees solid guidance for navigating these sometimes murky waters. Morris will underscore the need for employers to stay abreast of the latest and be vigilant in compliance measures.

Attendees will learn to prepare for federal and state scrutiny of criminal checks and credit reports, comprehend the risks and benefits of using social networking sites for screening as well as recruiting, and will gain an understanding of the most up-to-date developments of the “Ban the Box” legislation as well as how it affects recruiting and hiring endeavors.
