The New Bermuda Triangle: The Intersection of The Fair Credit Reporting Act, the EEOC’s Pronouncements on Background Checks, and the State and Local “Ban the Box” Movement
The Fair Credit Reporting Act is the new darling of class action attorneys. A recent rash of class action lawsuits alleges that employers using third parties to perform background checks are not complying with the FCRA. In-house counsel, HR professionals and hiring managers should be aware of the risks of non-compliance with the FCRA and the policies and procedures necessary to protect their organizations from liability. This webinar will highlight key compliance issues and offer suggestions for employers to protect themselves against costly litigation, with discussion and analysis relating FCRA issues to the EEOC’s background check protocols and the ever-growing “ban the box” movement which seeks to limit the use of criminal background checks. Click here to view recording
