Attorney Lester Rosen, Founder and CEO of Employment Screening Resources (ESR) and one of the premiere experts in the field of background checks, will present a webinar titled ‘Practical Steps Employers Can Take to Comply with the New EEOC Criminal Guidance’ on Thursday, June 14, 2012 from 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM Pacific Daylight Time. Seats to the complimentary webinar, which will provide participants a pathway to compliance with the new Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) Enforcement Guidance on the use of criminal records, may be reserved at: https://www2.gotomeeting.com/register/781044434.

On April 25, 2012, the EEOC – the agency that enforces federal laws prohibiting employment discrimination – voted to update Enforcement Guidance on the Consideration of Arrest and Conviction Records in Employment Decisions Under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 available at http://www.eeoc.gov/laws/guidance/arrest_conviction.cfm. In the webinar, Rosen will offer “real world” solutions on what employers should do now to remain in compliance with the EEOC while performing criminal background checks on job applicants. Topics covered in the webinar will 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;
* Individualized assessment of job applicants with criminal records;
* Compliance with other federal laws and/or regulations that conflict with Title VII;
* State and local laws or regulations preempted by Title VII;
* EEOC Guidance best practices for employers; and
* Links to EEOC Guidance materials and Q & A.

Rosen recently submitted a letter of public comment to the EEOC regarding the updated Enforcement Guidance on the Consideration of Arrest and Conviction Records in Employment Decisions Under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The letter of public comment from Rosen to the EEOC is available at: http://www.esrcheck.com/Les-Rosen-Public-Comment-on-EEOC-Criminal-Guidance.php.

Webinar registrants will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the Webinar. A recorded version of the webinar will be made available to all registrants, even those who do not attend, in an email the day after the presentation. Seats to the complimentary webinar ‘Practical Steps Employers Can Take to Comply with the New EEOC Criminal Guidance’ may be reserved at: https://www2.gotomeeting.com/register/781044434.
