    "Background Screening: More Challenges with FCRA Violations and Ban the Box"

    This presentation is pre-approved for both CHRM and HRCI credit, and was selected for SHRM2020 National Conference before cancellation due to the COVID 19 pandemic. 

    In Deb’s NEW installment in her national Background Screening educational series, she hits the most misunderstood and litigious topics still troubling employers today. Are you violating the FCRA? How about State or Federal laws? And how do you know? Deb will cover all aspects of Ban the Box, the EEOC ‘not so new’ Guidance and how it plays into the hiring process, negligent hiring, class action lawsuits, applicant authorization forms (an extremely hot area of litigation against employers), the Adverse Action process, how you’re screening firm may put you in harm’s way and more. It’s a must attend session for all HR professionals who are responsible for talent management, recruiting, hiring, risk & compliance practices and all HR stakeholders.

    Learning Objective #1

    Learn new reasons employers are at risk, including their own screening firm, as well as class action lawsuits and negligent hiring liability.

    Learning Objective #2

    Learn all components of Ban the Box and how to be compliant; what it means, understanding disparate impact, what is the ‘box’, who has banned it, can I still ask ‘the question’ and job exemptions.

    Learning Objective #3

    Learn how to properly administer the Adverse Action process, still one of the most misunderstood and litigious areas of background screening for employers.

    Learning Objective #4

    Learn how to create COMPLIANT Applicant Authorization forms, another key area of employer litigation.

    Learning Objective #5

    Learn the EEOC Guidance of 2012 and how to prepare and conduct compliant individualized assessments.
