Complimentary White Paper on Best Practice Standards: The Proper Use of Criminal Records in Hiring

January 12, 2016 | Bryan Barajas

Best practices cover page   January is always a good time of year to review and fine tune processes, including your company’s employment screening program.  Remember that compliance is important!

With that in mind, CARCO, the  industry-leading Employment Screening provider, is providing a Best Practice guide which explains, among other things, that employers need to follow sensible procedures in considering the past conviction records of job applicants, since failing to do so will both hurt the employer’s interests and risk discriminating against productive workers of every heritage.  The guide includes a clear, actionable checklist of the 20 Best Practice Standards that should be implemented by employers.

Jim Owens, CARCO’s CEO, and Fred Giles, CARCO’s SVP, Research Division, worked with the National H.I.R.E. Network, Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights and National Workrights Institute, along with Attorney Lester Rosen, Founder and CEO of Employment Screening Resources, to create this best practices piece.  According to Jim Owens, “CARCO is proud to have played a role in the development of this best practices document.   It provides a clear and practical road map for employers to comply with the guidance released by the EEOC in April of 2012 regarding the use of criminal records.”
