Before an employer makes a decision to deny employment as a result of a background check, they must carefully follow the adverse action process as defined by the federal FCRA (Fair Credit Reporting Act).

But for many HR and compliance professionals, several questions still remain. What do you need to know to stay compliant with hiring and background screening laws?

In Sterling’s upcoming webinar, Sterling's Angela Preston and Shawn O'Neil will discuss the federally-mandated adverse action process, along with the many challenges for employers seeking to comply with the FCRA.

  • Overview of the two-step adverse action process, including helpful Do’s and Dont’s
  • Suggestions for creating an effective adverse action policy for your organization
  • Discussion of the information and documentation employers need to include to stay compliant during the process
