Are Criminal Background Checks Discriminatory?
Court rules criminal background checks non-discriminatory while the federal government starts new law suits.
Arizona (I-Newswire) September 9, 2013 - In a significant turnaround on the acceptable use of Criminal Background Checks, a Federal Court ruled that requiring these Checks by an Employer were not discriminatory. The Judge noted that the data compiled by the Government was significantly flawed and dishonest.While the Government continues to proceed in cases against several large companies including Dollar General, it will be difficult for them to win cases in light of this ruling.In an interesting side note, it seems as if Employers are less likely to discriminate against minority applicants if a Criminal Background Check is used as part of the screening process. Without these reports Employers tend to rely more on hunches which may be based on racial bias.We have been working with our clients for over 20 years to make sure their application process is structured to handle these events. Permission statements, for example, are not just useful. They are becoming essential. It is also important for an employer to know how to read the results of these reports. Misunderstanding a Criminal Background Report entry can lead to charges of discrimination.Take a look at the following article for more details.http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424127887324747104579022983043566454.html
