Conducting Background Investigations
Two hour tele-web seminar August 21, 2012

This program will help you design and implement a standardized process and comply with current regulations, including recent EEOC guidance on criminal background checks.

This tele-web seminar will begin on Tuesday, August 21, 2012 at 11:30 AM to 1:30 PM Pacific Time.


Developing, administering and monitoring a comprehensive background investigation process should be an integral part of your Security Program. Recent regulatory changes, new privacy and information security regulations, and emerging industry-standard practices have created a variety of legal, moral and ethical issues for the boards and the persons and companies conducting the investigations. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) recently updated Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which focuses on employment discrimination based on race and national origin. In the update, the EEOC states that: An employer’s use of an individual’s criminal history in making employment decisions may, in some instances, violate the prohibition against employment discrimination. This presentation addresses the EEOC guidelines and provides a model that will help Security Department personnel understand the processes used to conduct comprehensive, effective investigations. You may use this model to design and implement a standardized, institution-wide background investigative process.
