Pre-employment background checks have become a standard part of the hiring procedure for most employers. Since each employee represents a large investment of time and money, employers want to make sure they get it right. Just one bad hire can become a legal and financial nightmare. At the same time, background checks are subject to a great deal of litigation, regulation, and legislation, especially in California where the rules are different than the rest of the country. Employers need to both exercise due diligence in employee selection and ensure they navigate through a maze of California and federal rules. Under California rules for example, failure to comply with numerous technical requirements can lead to demand for $10,000 in civil damages for each and every violation. The use of criminal records has also become a hot-button issue. This interactive presentation will equip employers to recognize critical compliance issues, including the new prohibition on salary inquiries, ban the box laws, and a number of "only in California," laws that are critical to understand.
