Course Description

Course Description

The Federal Consumer Protection Bureau issued a final rule summarizing consumer rights under the Fair Credit Reporting Act in 2019 when conducting background checks on potential new employees. Additionally, many states and municipalities have passed “Ban the Box” legislation making it illegal to ask about criminal convictions on an employment application.

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission has added to the confusion by publishing its own guideline on the use of background checks for hiring purposes. Wading through all the pre-hiring regulations has become burdensome for employers to understand their compliance requirements.

Even more perplexing for employers are the reporting requirements for adverse actions which require you to notify the applicant of a disqualifying item on the results of the background check and give them time to refute the results.

Couple all of this with protecting employers from negligent hiring and retention lawsuits and you know why many human resources professionals are pulling their hair out trying to be complying while making good hiring decisions. 

This CPE webinar by Bob McKenzie will review the intricacies of dealing with all of the above to recruit and retain the best employees possible.

This PDC/RCH course will concentrate on:

  • A thorough review of the Fair Credit Reporting Act in the hiring process.
  • When to send Adverse Action Notices?
  • Protecting your organization from negligent hiring and retention lawsuits.
  • Understanding the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission guidelines on background and credit checks.
  • What is “Ban the Box” and how does it affect hiring decisions?
  • Making it all work together.

Learning Objectives

  • To discuss your rights and responsibilities under the Fair Credit Reporting Act, The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission Guidelines, and state and municipal regulations on Ban the Box.
  • To analyze the steps that must be taken in the recruitment process to be following the myriad of regulations.
  • To explain Negligent Hiring and how to avoid it in the hiring process.
