September 27, 2012 at 11:00 - 12:00 PM ET
Les Rosen, Attorney and CEO(Employment Screening Resources (ESR))
The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), the agency that enforces federal laws prohibiting employment discrimination, approved on April 25, 2012 an updated Enforcement Guidance on the Consideration of Arrest and Conviction Records in Employment Decisions Under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. This Guidance may well have an profound impact on how employers in America hire.

In the webinar ‘Practical Steps Employers Can Take to Comply with the New EEOC Criminal Guidance,’ Attorney and safe hiring expert Lester Rosen, Founder and CEO of Employment Screening Resources (ESR) will present a webinar that will go beyond simply repeating the EEOC Guidance language and give “real world” examples and suggestions on what employers should do now to remain in compliance while performing criminal background checks. Topics covered in the webinar by Rosen, author of ‘The Safe Hiring Manual,’ include:
-Longstanding court decisions and existing EEOC Guidance documents
-Employment discrimination based on race and national origin, criminal records, and employer practices
-The differences between arrest and conviction records
-Disparate treatment and disparate impact analysis under Title VII
-Employer defenses the EEOC believes meet the “job related and consistent with business necessity” standard
-Compliance with other federal laws and/or regulations that conflict with Title VI
-State and local laws or regulations preempted by Title VII
-EEOC Guidance best practices for employers
-Option for handling questions about post criminal records
--Criticisms of the new EEOC Guidance
-The Good, the Maybe and the Impossible stemming from the new Guidance
-What should employers do now?

At the end of the session, you will have a road map for action items you can implement immediately to demonstrate legal compliance.
