Questions Left Unasked: Topics to Avoid During the Hiring Process


Three of our California HR Team lawyers held a complimentary one-hour webinar on recent statutory developments and cases that limit the scope of employers’ use of background information (including criminal records and credit information) in hiring. The presentation also included a brief update on new developments of interest in employee benefits.

Topics discussed:

  • New Fair Employment and Housing Council regulations and federal guidance regarding the use of criminal history in hiring
  • “Ban the box” and similar “fair chance” ordinances limiting inquiries about criminal records
  • Guidelines for use of credit and other background information under the Fair Credit Reporting Act and the California Investigative Consumer Reporting Agencies Act
