How to Avoid Legal Complications when Conducting Background Screening

Presented by John McTighe, EVP of Background Screening at Data Facts

It seems every year comes with a new swathe of background screening laws. These can come from the Federal Government, State Governments, or even local municipalities. These laws have been followed up on by intensive legal action against employers for these compliance violations. In addition, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and various state EEO agencies have substantially stepped up their enforcement activity against employers whose screening methods may have a disparate impact on minorities and women.

This presentation will cover the key requirements of the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), as well as several state laws. We’ll also break down guidance put forth by the EEOC and offer some recommendations on how to create a consistent background check policy.

Key Learning Points:

  • Core FCRA employer obligations
  • How to structure background screening to avoid disparate impact
  • Recommendations for policy development
  • And more!
