Webinar - Background Checks


Presenter:  Jonathan Kok

When making hiring decisions, more and more employers are relying on background checks. But what’s legal and what isn’t? In an effort to balance an employer's “need to know” with an employee's privacy and Equal Employment Opportunity rights, many federal and state laws regulate the type and amount of information that employers may obtain. This webinar will discuss the litigation risks associated with background checks and help employers determine what information they can and cannot use.
