Background Checks
National Summary
Employers often conduct background checks to confirm information provided by applicants during the hiring process. To appropriately balance an employer's “need to know” with an employee's privacy and equal employment opportunity rights, many federal and state laws regulate the type and amount of information employers may obtain about a job applicant or employee. Before conducting background investigations, employers should be fully aware of the requirements under applicable law and ensure that their preemployment screening practices are in compliance.
