On July 25, 2018, I presented a complimentary webinar called “Criminal Records & Employment Background Checks.” For those who couldn’t attend the live webinar, I’m happy to make it available for you to watch at your convenience.
In the webinar, I discuss:
- Ban-the-Box Laws
- Fair Credit Reporting Act Compliance
- Discrimination Claims
- And more
The webinar focuses on New York employers. All topics covered potentially apply to public and private organizations, including governmental entities and non-profits.
Why You Should Watch “Criminal Records & Employment Background Checks”
There are many procedural requirements related to the use of criminal records in hiring. Even if you’re already using background checks, you should make sure you’re following all the right steps.
The penalties can be severe if you miss any required elements. Or if you improperly exclude a candidate based on a criminal conviction.
