Webinar on Avoiding the Legal Pitfalls from Screening Applicants.

Learn the legal pitfalls that come from employment background checks & EEOC training for employment screening services.

OverviewIt is bad enough that when you check into an applicant's background that previous employers will only let you know that the applicant worked for them and their position. Now, EEOC training has changed its position regarding EEOC compliance on how to analyse an individual's criminal background checks, making it more difficult to exclude those with a criminal background. On the other hand, employers have faced costly jury verdicts for negligent hiring when the individual inflicts harm on others. This webinar will walk you through the laws you should consider in your employment screening services like Title VII, the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Fair Credit Reporting Act, and more!Why Should You AttendHiring the wrong individual can be costly in so many ways. Obviously, if you hire the wrong person, you eventually will be looking at terminating him/her, and terminations always run the risk of a lawsuit. Hiring someone with a violent or criminal background can lead to a negligent hiring claim should the individual inflict harm on others while working for your organization. Yet, there are so many laws that say what you can or can't do when screening your applicants.
