January 17, 2018

In this episode of The Proskauer Brief, partner Harris Mufson and associate Michelle Gyves discuss the main laws governing background checks for employers. We will discuss how employers can utilize the federal Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) to conduct pre-employment background checks on candidates.  In addition to FCRA, we also discuss how “ban the box” and credit check laws play a role in screening potential employees.  Be sure to tune in for more information on how these laws can affect both employers and candidates.
