Getting to “You’re hired!” has never been more complicated and legally risky!

In fact, employers are under a hiring microscope when it comes to inquiring about whether an applicant has been arrested for a criminal offense. Now 29 states and more than 150 cities and counties have made it illegal to ask about a candidate’s criminal history on a job application.

In addition to this “ban the box” legislation, new laws are popping up that prohibit employers from asking an applicant for their salary history as a way to ensure pay equity.

And if that’s not enough, an onslaught of FCRA violations arising out of background checks creates uncertainty for many employers on how to ensure that their hiring processes are in compliance.
