WEST CHESTER, Pa., June 2, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- VeriFirst Background Screening, LLC, a national leader in risk management and background screening services, has published updates to its popular EEOC Background Check Decision Matrix.
In order to stay compliant with the 2012 EEOC Enforcement Guidance, employers' use of an applicant's criminal record history must not violate Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Many employers find that the most challenging part of complying with the Enforcement Guidance is the so called, "Individualized Assessment". As part of the assessment, a job-specific matrix is created to offer HR professionals consistent, non-discriminatory clarity on which criminal convictions disqualify certain candidates from particular positions.
Due to the nature of EEOC compliance and in order to avoid litigation, VeriFirst's EEOC Background Check Decision Matrix template has become the most downloaded content on the VeriFirst website.
VeriFirst Background Screening's other employee screening services include:
- Identity checks (social security number verification and address history)
- Criminal background searches (county, statewide, federal, national and international)
- Employment, education and license verification history
- Financial history (credit reporting)
- Substance abuse (drug testing)
- Workforce eligibility (e-verify)
VeriFirst employs Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) certified employees and assists its clients in human resources compliance with FCRA, EEOC and other state and federal regulations. The company has been delivering risk management and background screening services since 2004.
Clients interested in learning more about the EEOC Enforcement Guidance are encouraged to read the following:
