How You Can Make Background Checks Easy


Background checks are complicated. There are gaps between federal and state laws. How do you navigate these complexities, so that your company stays compliant? How are you supposed to juggle all this when so much else factors into finding the right hire?


Many state governments are ramping up regulations. New York’s recent “Ban the Box” initiative prohibits employers from investigating a candidate’s criminal background until the final stage of the hiring process. But that isn’t federal law—unless, according to an Obama-era regulation, you’re hiring federal employees!


Likewise, while the Fair Credit Reporting Act prescribes certain norms for accuracy and privacy, California’s Consumer Credit Reporting Agencies Act (CCRAA) regulates this space even more tightly. And California is constantly revising its Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) regulations, taking them ever-further from those that apply on the federal level.


How can you possibly juggle all these requirements while trying to hire top talent?
