"Are Your Hiring Practices Compliant? How to Navigate the Muddy Waters of Background and Credit Check Laws in 2018" Complimentary Webinar

Date   Nov 30, 2017

This webinar was recorded Thursday, November 30, 2017.

About the Program
Employers regularly utilize criminal and credit history information to screen candidates for employment and assist with difficult hiring decisions. To do so, however, they must navigate an ever increasing (and confusing) web of federal, state, and local laws regulating employer rights to obtain such information. Employers often fall victim to the complexities of these laws and find themselves subjected to expensive litigation and statutory penalties for inadvertent violations. As we approach 2018, employers should familiarize themselves with recent developments in this area, including an update on Fair Credit Reporting Act compliance and claims, state-specific “Ban-the-Box” rules and regulations, and recently enacted state laws prohibiting employers from requesting salary information during the application process. Join attorneys Bennet Alsher and David Anderson for an interactive discussion about the contours of these laws and strategies for limiting  potential violations and legal exposure – all while retaining flexibility to make effective hiring decisions for your workforce.
