Negligent hiring is one of the fastest growing areas of employment litigation. Equally problematic are lawsuits against employers that do background checks but fail to follow state and federal rules, or utilize criminal records unfairly. Employers need to do background checks, but they also need to do them right.  


Learn legally complaint best practices to keep your organization productive and out of court, including how to obtain and utilize criminal record and background information on job applicants. Plus, get updated on recent legal developments and review case studies that demonstrate important steps to take. 


Find out about cutting-edge issues, such as the Ban the Box, the EEOC's approach to the use of criminal records, and issues surrounding the use of credit reports and social networking sites. You'll also review the basics of the federal Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), important California rules, and discover how to avoid class action lawsuits for not doing checks the right way.
