Webinar: Key Trends in Pre-employment Screening and Testing

David B. Weisenfeld - XpertHR Legal Editor

From the use of criminal background checks for employment purposes to ban the box laws and credit checks, this webinar covers key dos and don'ts plus the state of the law.

Another key issue will be the EEOC's 2012 Enforcement Guidance on the use of arrest and conviction records - both for what itsays and for what it does not say about employer use of these records.

In addition, drug testing of job applicants will be addressed, including what the spate of recent state medical marijuanalaws means for employers plus why the Americans with Disabilities Actcannot be overlooked. And finally, we will touch on the trendof mandatory E-Verify laws to confirm the work eligibility of new hires.

This webinar covers:

  • The EEOC's stance on using arrest and conviction records for employment purposes;
  • Why Ban the Box laws should not scare you away from background checks;
  • How employers should tread cautiously with credit checks; and
  • What medical marijuana laws mean for drug testing job applicants.
