Criminal Records Webinar“On one hand, employers are concerned about negligent hiring and workplace safety since they can be sued if they hire workers with unsuitable criminal records that cause harm,” explains Rosen, author of ‘The Safe Hiring Manual’ and a frequent speaker on background check issues. “However, society also wants to ensure ex-offenders have a second chance to obtain employment and become law-abiding citizens.”
Along with the federal Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) and the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) guidance of 2012, employers must comply with state laws that impact background checks and the use of criminal records. In this webinar hosted by Clear Law Institute, attendees will learn how usage of criminal records by employers has become a hot-button issue and will be able to.
