As I’m sure everyone is aware, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission just published a new guidance document on the use of arrest and conviction records in employment. I hope everyone was able to attend the webinar held by our law firm April 26, 2012 regarding the impact of this new guidance.
For your convenience, you may access a copy of the new guidance document below. We would recommend that you consult with your corporate legal counsel regarding any impact of this new guidance on your hiring practices.
Here is also a link to a blog post by the law firm of Seyfarth Shaw LLC with some excellent information on the subject.
