Pre-employment screening is used by many businesses to verify the accuracy of
applicants’ employment history, educational history, and credentials, as well as confirming the lack of criminal history, workers compensation claims, and sanctions. Employment screening is using public or private records and investigation to confirm or disprove the accuracy of an applicants resume.

Because of the potential sensitivity of the information uncovered, employment screening is subject to a unique set of laws and regulations to protect consumers in the event of misuse of data or fraud.

Employers must be in the know...

Recently, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC) joined forces to publish guideline documents to continue to educate employers regarding background checks and the applicable laws and regulations surrounding them. The information provided isn't anything new but it serves as a good reminder for employers that currently are conducting background checks for employment purposes or those employers that may be planning on starting. Here are some of the highlights:
  • Treat everyone equally
  • Follow the required procedures of the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA)
  • Do not discriminate
  • Follow the FCRA requirements when taking an adverse action
  • Retain the information for a 1 year period
Running background checks on employees isn't something companies should take lightly as there are a lot of regulations around it that employers must be aware of beyond the guidelines noted here. Although the document published by these two federal agencies provide a wealth of information about nondiscrimination laws and compliance with the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), there are also many state and municipality laws that employers must also consider when conducting employment background checks that fall along the lines of what employers can and cannot ask for as well as the use of the information received. 

It is important for companies to have a solid written policy regarding background checks and that policy is followed consistently within the guidelines and regulations of federal and state law.
