Criminal Records, EEOC Guidelines and Employment Screening

Criminal records have become indispensible for employers as a tool to ensure a safe and productive workplace for employees as well as the general public.

The courts are also increasingly placing an obligation on employers to assess the nature of the job, its degree of risk to third parties and perform a reasonable background investigation to ensure the applicant is competent and fit for the position.

At the same time, the EEOC prohibits certain practices when using criminal records for employment purposes and mandates certain procedures that must be documented even when using in accordance with their guidance.

CrimApollo allows employers to assess the job and the offense and obtain practical guidance while ensuring EEOC guidelines are followed and the process is documented.
