EEOC Guidance / Ban the Box Webinar

Posted in Events, News & Events on 03/31/2015

For many employers, checking criminal records has been an integral part of their background screening program.  However, many of those same employers struggle with balancing the need for a criminal search to maintain a safe workplace with following the EEOC Guidance on the Consideration of Arrest and Conviction Records in Employment Decision.

Is it still legal to ask about criminal record convictions on my application?
Can I ever ask about criminal records?
Can I still do a criminal record search on my applicants?
How do I follow these guidelines and still maintain a safe workplace?
I hire for several locations across the country.  How can I manage this?

All of these questions and more will be answered in our webinar and will be presented by Jonathan Hyman, partner at Meyers Roman.  Jon is an author, speaker and highly respected blogger in the employment law arena, and will walk you through these procedures to answer your questions.

The live program has been approved for 1 (HR (General)) recertification credit hours toward PHR, SPHR and GPHR recertification through the HR Certification Institute.

Please join us on Tuesday, April 21st from 1:00 to 2:00 ET to participate in our webinar.
