Objective: Many employers perform pre-employment background checks, whether required by law, busi-ness needs or both. As employer needs expand, compliance requirements escalate, becoming more and more complex as new statutes come on line. Now, even a minor error can result in major liability for an employer. This program will provide employers with information, tools and tips on compliance with background check laws, including criminal background checks, the Fair Credit Reporting Act, state credit check laws, "Ban-the-Box" laws and similar prohibitions.
