Background checks are ingrained in law and compliance. The Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), state laws, and local ordinances define relevant requirements and restrictions. Courts and government agencies are often the sources of some records. In fact, laws may be why you screen in the first place, with many industries facing regulations. Most importantly, no matter how or why you screen your employees, you, as an employer, have legal obligations. In this one-hour webinar we’ll let you in on what trends we are tracking, from automatic expungement laws to wider recreational cannabis legalization. You’ll also see how courts are ruling on cases involving critical disclosure and authorization documents. Join us to learn about compliance topics trending in 2023:
