New Law Alert on Conducting Criminal Background Checks
This is a webinar program presented through Zoom.
In the last decade, the rules around asking and taking adverse action against an employee because of a criminal background check have become much stricter. From EEOC guidance restricting the use of criminal background check information to Ban the Box, employers have had to tread carefully when completing background checks.
However, with Illinois passing a new amendment to the Illinois Human Rights Act at the end of March 2021, which severely restricts the use of criminal background checks, employers have to be more careful than ever. Among other things, this new law requires employers to provide notice to the candidate regarding the conviction, clearly articulate why the conviction makes the candidate unfit for the job and provide the candidate an opportunity to contest the rescission of the job offer.
In this session, we will discuss all of this, including the various federal and state laws that apply to the background check process and how employers can conduct a background check in a way that meets their needs and complies with all applicable laws.
