Georgia Restaurant Association says
Join the GRA and Evan Rosen of Jackson Lewis P.C. for our upcoming webinar on Background Checks – Avoiding Pitfalls that Can Lead to Major Liability.

Overview:
Pre-employment background checks are often used by restaurant companies to ensure that they do not hire individuals who have a propensity to engage in criminal or unethical behavior. But many employers do not realize that there are strict legal regulations pertaining to background checks. Employers who violate these rules can incur significant liability.

Increasingly, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission is reviewing employers’ hiring practices, including the use of background checks, to determine if they are discriminatory. In addition, plaintiffs’ attorneys are bringing class action lawsuits based on an employer’s failure to comply strictly with the requirements of the Fair Credit Reporting Act. The use of social media to investigate applicants is another area fraught with peril.

This webinar will cover each of these area and will focus on practical best practices for your restaurant company to follow to avoid exposure under these laws.
