Key Trends in Pre-employment Screening and Testing
This session will cover several critical pre-employment screening and testing issues of interest to HR professionals. XpertHR Legal Editor David Weisenfeld has reported on a host of employment law issues in his career from the Supreme Court to legislative and regulatory issues, and handles the company’s recruiting coverage on

From the use of criminal background checks for employment purposes to Ban the Box laws and credit checks, you will get caught up on key do’s and don’ts plus the state of the law. Quick reference charts will be included as well so multi-state employers are up to speed. Compliance topics regarding the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), including its notice and consent requirements, also will be discussed.

Another key issue will be the EEOC’s 2012 Enforcement Guidance on the use of arrest and conviction records – both for what it says and for what it does not say about employer use of these records.

In addition, drug testing of job applicants will be addressed, including what the state of recent state medical marijuana laws means for employers plus why the Americans with Disabilities Act cannot be overlooked. And finally, Weisenfeld will touch on the trend of mandatory E-Verify laws to confirm the work eligibility of new hires.

Whether you work in HR in the public or private employment sector, this is a webinar you will not want to miss. Any HR professional will find this session useful in terms of making sure their recruiting and hiring efforts are legally compliant.
