Jared Callahan, a licensed Private Investigator and Business Development Director at Employment Screening Resources (ESR), presents Complying with Federal and State Laws Regulating Pre-employment Screening and Safe Hiring. To avoid bad hiring decisions, employers have increasingly turned to background screening as a risk management tool. But, no screening program should be conducted without a full understanding of the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), discrimination and privacy laws, the ADA, and a host of state-specific rules. Even credit reports, criminal records and social network sites are impacted by EEOC and ADA considerations. Examine federal and state laws to ensure legal compliance of your organization’s practices. Participants will discover new and existing state laws that have an effect on background checks as well as International considerations when implementing a Safe Hiring program. Topics will include the offshoring of Personal Identifiable Information (PII), required state-by-state Disclosure and Consent language, and the use of criminal record information in the hiring process. In addition, setting up a policy for background checks will be discussed as well as what to do when a report comes back with seemingly derogatory information (when candidates are turned down because of a background check certain notices are required). We will discuss background checks and social network sites; specifically the pitfalls when using social media as a recruiting tool. In addition to the components of a background check, we will cover what to look out for on the application and the questions to ask during the interview process – tools that cost nothing.
