Background checks are an exercise in risk management in hiring. Companies want to get their hiring decisions right, aligning skills and experience with a job profile, reducing the likelihood a hire won’t work out or, worse yet, cause the company liability. Thus, companies want as much information as possible on job candidates. But background checks themselves are fraught with potential liability.

Background checks are an exercise in risk management in hiring.  Companies want to get their hiring decisions right, aligning skills and experience with a job profile, reducing the likelihood a hire won’t work out or, worse yet, cause the company liability. Thus, companies want as much information as possible on job candidates.  But background checks themselves are fraught with potential liability. There are many categories of questions that employers may not ask job applicants; and if they do ask those questions, employers open themselves to financial liability.  Indeed, there is a trend toward in legislation and common law to further limit background checks. This program will provide you with a  real-world guide to what’s allowed and not allowed in background checks, and best practices for using that information and avoiding liability.

·         Social media background checks

·         Potential liability (and measure of damages) for improper/discriminatory use of background checks

·         Trend toward “Ban the Box” legislation

·         Counseling clients about best practices in conducting/using background checks
