EmployeeScreenIQ (http://www.employeescreen.com) president and chief operating officer, Jason B. Morris will present, “My Candidate Has a Criminal Record. Now What?” at the Mile High SHRM Conference in Denver, Colorado on January 23, 2015, 9:15-10:15am.
Not a month went by in 2014 without a multi-million dollar lawsuit filed against an employer for their background screening practices.
While a criminal record should not automatically disqualify a candidate, employers also want to protect their company by properly screening candidates. However, many companies may be at risk if they are not following appropriate state and federal screening laws and should take steps to ensure they are not the next company to make headline news.
With nearly 18 years in background screening, Jason Morris presents four steps to compliance when a candidate has a criminal record. These steps to compliance include, the proper use of a hiring matrix, individualized assessments, the execution of a two-step adverse action process, and proper management of candidate disputes.
