Staffing Agencies, Ban the Box Laws and Salary History Restrictions, Oh My!

Presented by

Bill Simmons, labor law attorney at Litter and Laura Randazzo, VP, Compliance at CareerBuilder

About this talk

The “ban the box” (now, perhaps more accurately “Fair Chance Act”) and “salary history ban” trends continue to catch fire, with California just the latest jurisdiction to adopt new laws. Simply modifying employment applications is no longer enough to comply with the wide array of restrictions now placed on employers. The trends hit staffing agencies and PEOs perhaps the hardest. Agencies and PEOs have a high volume of candidates to screen, increasing the chances of a costly error slipping through the cracks. Moreover, client requirements and business needs often can seem to conflict with a compliant or “50 state universal” solution. Bill Simmons, labor law attorney at Littler, will discuss how these new laws impact staffing firms and offer solutions on what to do right now to stay out in front. What you will learn: • The complicated compliance issues in employment screening and how these impact staffing agencies • The special challenges these laws pose and some possible solutions for your staffing firm • How a background check partner can help you navigate these issues
