Criminal Background Checks are Vital but Need to be Handled Appropriately

Employers have many legitimate reasons for conducting criminal background checks, from mitigating the risk of workplace violence and negligent hiring lawsuits to reducing employee theft. Those that reject candidates based solely on convictions or arrests, however, face a different kind of threat.

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission has taken the position that criminal background checks may violate anti-discrimination laws because minorities are arrested and convicted of crimes at higher rates than non-minorities. The EEOC’s latest regulations for business is 52 pages long and contains over 100 footnotes, making it a daunting document to digest and follow, unless you have some help. At BackGroundCheckCentral, we know the law and can assist you in implementing a background screening program that fits your company, your budget and helps to keep you compliant.
