Skeletons in the Closet Can Be Scary


Dos and Don'ts of Conducting Criminal Background Checks

While employers use criminal background checks as a useful hiring tool, reliance on them may expose them to significant liability. Even using background checks as required by state law is problematic; complying with state law is not a defense to federal discrimination laws.
Jeffrey Klink will be speaking on this subject at the 2016 Employment Law Institute West on Friday, November 18 in Pittsburgh.
The session will review: 
-  the dilemmas associated with use of criminal background checks
-  court and EEOC guidance
-  common pitfalls
-  frequent questions regarding their use.
