9/18/2014 North Carolina State SHRM (Speaking Engagement)
September 20, 2014
EmployeeScreenIQ president and chief operating officer, Jason B. Morris will present, “My Candidate Has a Criminal Record. Now What?” at the North Carolina State SHRM’s 2014 “Hooked On HR” Conference in Greenville, North Carolina on September 18, 2014.
As scrutiny of background screening companies has steadily increased from both the media and Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), employers must keep up with the latest legislation in relation to the background screening process. Employers want to make the best hiring decision, but that doesn’t mean applicant rights should take a backseat when a background check is ordered. Staying up-to-date with the latest guidelines by the EEOC should be a necessity, not an option.
With valuable insight into the minds of hiring managers, Morris will discuss employer attitudes toward the background screening process as well as the importance of remaining compliant in the interest of applicant’s rights.
He will also 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 accuse employers of overinflating the importance of background checks when negative results are revealed.
