Clark Hill Kicks Off Its 2017 In-House Counsel Webinar Series

Jan 3, 2017

DETROIT, MI – Clark Hill will kick off its 2017 In-House Counsel Webinar Series with the webinar Don’t Pull That Credit Report So Fast – The New Pitfalls of Employee Background Checks on Tuesday, January 17, 2017, from 12 pm to 1 pm EST.

An employee background check, in the form of pulling a candidate's credit report, is the cornerstone of a company’s due diligence. However, heightened regulatory scrutiny can make the simple task of pulling a credit report into a high-risk proposition that finds its way to the legal department. Clark Hill experts, Stephanie Rawitt and Joann Needleman, will break down for In-House Attorneys the necessary requirements a company must undertake in an investigation of a potential new hire, commencing with employer compliance with anti-discrimination laws and ban the box legislation, and concluding with guidance on the proper vetting of your service providers who may provide you with important credit information about your candidate.
