Karen will address us both in the general session and in a breakout session:
General Session Topic
This presentation will provide updates on the latest employment law trends and initiatives, including enforcement trends emerging from three federal agencies that are aggressively pursuing non-compliant employers--the EEOC, the DOL, and the NLRB. In addition to reviewing these trends, the presentation will focus on practical advice for employers to audit their HR practices to ensure they stay off the radar screen of these agencies.
The EEOC recently issued guidelines on the use of arrest and conviction records in employment decisions, and similar communication is expected on the use of credit history information. The guidelines aim to explain when an employment practice will be considered "job related and consistent with business necessity" and therefore lawful, as contrasted with practices that could violate Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 by having a disparate impact on a protected group. We will cover these new guidelines and provide suggestions for employers to navigate them as they conduct background checks.
