2015 Illinois HR Conference and Exposition (Speaking Engagement)



EmployeeScreenIQ executive vice president and chief marketing officer, Nick Fishman will present, “My Candidate Has a Criminal Record. Now What?” at the 16th Annual Illinois HR Conference and Exhibition at the Tinley Park Convention Center in Tinley Park, Illinois on September 15, 2015, 10:15-11:30 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 16 years in background screening, Nick Fishman 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.
