This course will cover the use of employee background checks under the EEOC best practices.
Being accused of being a discriminatory employer is never a good thing. The cost of having to defend the company against an EEOC accusation can run into the tens of thousands of dollars. Additionally, since EEOC cases are published the poor press and potential loss of business, as a result, makes insuring you are following the EEOC best practices important.
This course will cover the use of EEOC background checks in the employment process. We will talk about:

• Adverse actions procedures
• Problems that may arise
The US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has seen that the potential for discrimination during the background check process is greater than what most people think. You will learn what their best practices are to lessen the chances of being discriminatory in the EEOC’s eyes.
