For many years in many industries, it was assumed that the safest hiring policy
was simply to reject any applicant with a criminal record. But recent federal anti-dis-
crimination-enforcement efforts and new opportunities available under state law have
changed the calculus for business. This program will cover the many interlocking legal
considerations affecting an employer’s decisions regarding job applicants with crimi-
nal records including: the EEOC’s and U.S. Department of Labor’s recently updated
policy guidance, the Fair Credit Reporting Act, negligent-hiring liability, criminal-

program and the Work Opportunity Tax Credit. The information-packed three hours
will give you practical insight and resources to ensure that the hiring policies of your
clients’ companies intelligently address all sides of this issue.
