Last week I posted a blog entry about a presentation I was doing at the NAPBS Mid-Year Conference (click here).  If you weren’t able to attend our session or the conference, no worries as the session is available in webinar format thanks to ClearStar.  The title of the free webinar is: Ban the Box Measures and their Impact on Background Screeners and Employers.

My colleague Henry Perlowski and I will be co-presenters.  Henry and I co-chair Arnall Golden Gregory’s Background Screening Practice Group.  The session will cover Ban the Box measures at the state and federal level and the impact of these measures on background screeners and employers who conduct background checks. Topics discussed will include who (public/private) is affected by these measures; the onboarding and job application process; and what, when, and where multistate companies can ask questions about criminal arrests and convictions. The session will cover federal/EEOC guidance and state and local requirements and potential discriminatory concerns associated with considering criminal arrest and conviction records in the hiring process.

Employers — if you have a box on your job application inquiring about the applicant’s criminal history and asking them to answer “yes” or “no” as to whether they have been arrested or convicted of a crime, this webinar is for you.

We hope you will join us.  Click here to register for this webinar which will be held April 29th at 2 pm EST.
