What should you do if an applicant or employee has a criminal history?
It happens more and more often: a background check on an applicant comes back with problems, or you find out after the fact that a new employee has a criminal history. What are the legal requirements, and what should you do?
This audio conference focuses on some of the most-common background check challenges many hiring managers face, such as:
