Are you compliant with all the laws that regulate when and how you can conduct background checks?

Since the EEOC issued its Enforcement Guidance in 2012, it has aggressively pursued numerous lawsuits against employers challenging their background check programs.

Why? Because there’s a theory that background checks can have a “disparate impact” on minority workers.

And while it can seem daunting to navigate the complicated web of unique legal requirements that touch various aspects of your background check program, you simply can’t ignore them.

In fact, when you dig into someone’s past, it’s not just the EEOC you have to worry about. You must also follow the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) and take notice of the ban-the-box movement sweeping the nation.
