Compliance in the hiring process is complex and the landscape shifts constantly. The landscape includes mandates regarding disclosure and authorization, ban the box laws, and credentialing. You need to consider federal, state and local requirements — and these sometimes conflict with one another. Regulations come from a variety of laws and agencies, including the federal Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), California’s Investigative Consumer Reporting Agencies Act (ICRAA) is California, Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). According to the Society of Human Resources Management (SHRM), FCRA and other claims, against employers, have been rising steadily since 2011. If you neglect to stay current on compliance, you could fall prey to lawyers and others looking for lawsuit dollars.
