Attendees of the live 90 minute webinar with Rosen will learn many states and localities have enacted Ban the Box laws prohibiting employers from requiring that applicants check a box on the application if they have been arrested for a criminal offense. Organizations using outside agencies to conduct background checks need to make sure they comply with the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) and federal laws prohibiting discrimination enforced by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).
