FTC and EEOC Agree on Background Check Guidelines

1 Apr

On March 10, 2014, the Federal Trade Commission (“FTC”) and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (“EEOC”) jointly issued two short guides on the use of background checks in hiring and personnel decisions.

Generally speaking, these guides do not break new ground, but serve more as reminders to employers of their existing obligations under federal law when inquiring into or otherwise considering an applicant’s or employee’s background information. I have attached information about these new guides for you.

If you have questions about procedures for hiring new employees or “on-boarding” (the important first weeks of getting new employees established as productive members of your team), let me know and our team of human resources professionals can assist you
