Attendees will get real-world perspective on how organizations like Hunter Douglas and Lockheed Martin manage the complexities of background screening compliance and are navigating challenges amid the COVID-19 crisis and beyond. They’ll learn how they can build compliance controls into their own organization’s background screening program by addressing federal regulations (FCRA and EEOC), state and local laws (Ban the Box), and internal policies and procedures.

Key takeaways from this panel discussion include getting practical-guidance insights on:

  • FCRA Compliance: disclosure and authorizations, adverse action, and how COVID-19 “Stay at Home” orders impacted background screening programs with court closures and delays.
  • EEOC Compliance: individualized assessment, EEOC guidance and possible discrimination issues around use of criminal history and in return-to-work screening.
  • Ban the Box / Fair Chance at the state and local level.
