Equal Employment Opportunity Commission Issues Guidance on Criminal-Background Checks

Categories: U.S. Legislatitive Issues, Government News, Legislative & Regulatory News | Author: Mike Williams | Posted: 4/26/2012 | Views: 4373
The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has issued a new guidance document that impacts the ability of employers to continue to use criminal-background checks to make informed hiring decisions. The new guidance replaces one that had been in effect for twenty-five years and has served a wide variety of professions and occupations as a de facto national regulation.

Numerous organizations, including NAEDA, had expressed concerns to EEOC as this guidance document was being developed. All the organizations believed that criminal background checks are an important tool in efforts to help protect employees, customers and the public at–large from workplace violence, fraud and theft.

Dealers are encouraged to become familiar with these new guidelines. Note the setion on "best practices" included in the document starting on page 25.

A copy of the guidance document can be found here.

EEOC has also issued a Q & A which can be found here.
