2015 HR Indiana Annual Conference (Speaking Engagement)



EmployeeScreenIQ president and chief operating officer, Jason B. Morris will present, “My Candidate Has a Criminal Record. Now What?” at the 2015 HR Indiana Conference sponsored by the Indiana State Council of SHRM at the JW Marriott in Indianapolis, Indiana on August 26, 2015, 8:15-9:30 a.m.

Not a month went by in 2014 without a multi-million dollar lawsuit filed against an employer for its background screening practices. Many companies may be putting themselves at risk if they are not following appropriate state and federal screening laws. While a criminal record should not automatically disqualify a candidate, employers must also protect their companies by properly screening candidates.

With nearly 18 years in background screening, Jason Morris presents four steps to compliance when a candidate has a criminal record. These include: the proper use of a hiring matrix, individualized assessments, the execution of a two-step adverse action process and proper management of candidate disputes.
