Legally Obtaining Criminal Records

Gain a better understanding of how to stay compliant when using background checks for potential employees.

Many employers want to conduct background checks on potential employees to try to insure that they are not hiring a problem employee. There are legal constraints as to when you can get background checks, what information you can use in determining whether to hire someone, and procedures that must be followed when obtaining and using background checks. The laws can be confusing in this area as there are federal, state, and local laws that address employers' use of background checks. Join me as we navigate your obligations under these various laws.
