EmployeeScreenIQ Vice President of Compliance and General Counsel Angela Preston will present “My Candidate Has a Criminal Record. Now What?” at the SHRM Talent Management Conference and Exposition in San Diego on April 28, 10:45 a.m.-12:00 p.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 themselves by properly screening candidates.

Preston, who has more than 10 years’ experience in background screening, will offer four steps to compliance when a candidate has a criminal record. These steps to compliance include:

  •     The proper use of a hiring matrix
  •     Individualized assessments
  •     The execution of a two-step adverse action process
  •     Proper management of candidate disputes
