About the Program

Most employers undertake some type of background check before hiring an employee. Many background checks include obtaining information on a potential employee's credit history and whether the individual has any criminal convictions. Join Ford & Harrison attorney Craig Thorstenson for a free e-briefing discussing the legal risks when making hire decisions based on such information. Topics to be covered include:
  • The Illinois Employee Credit Privacy Act effective January 1, 2011
  • The EEOC's position on using criminal convictions when making hire decisions
  • How state law impacts the use of criminal convictions to make hire decisions
  • What an employer can expect from an EEOC investigation into a charge of discrimination related to a decision not to hire someone
