FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Background Investigation Compliance Program Launched
April 1, 2015 Ontario, CA – Personnel Concepts, a nationwide provider of Labor Law Posters and Compliance products, has announced the launch of their new Background Investigation Compliance Program. The program is a comprehensive collection of information, documentation forms, and applicant handouts to ensure full compliance with state, federal and local laws pertaining to background investigations and pre-employment screening.
Every company that employs background investigations and pre-employment screening practices must comply with numerous laws, the violation of which could result in heavy fines. These laws continue to evolve and in November, 2014 the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) partnered together to release new guidance for applicants and employees on their rights during a background investigation. The Background Investigation Compliance Program addresses these new guidelines ensuring compliance and aiding companies in avoiding hefty fines and penalties.
“Personnel Concepts continues to stay on top of new government guidelines to keep the businesses we support compliant and worry free.” said Robert Leland III, Personnel Concepts Director of Research. “Businesses need to feel confident in their background check and screening procedures. These processes support the formation of an effective team, the very foundation of success. This new product simply assists in the building of that solid foundation.”
The Background Investigation Compliance Program not only provides worry-free compliance with applicable state and federal laws, but also puts companies ahead of an emerging workplace issue. “More states and municipalities are expected to enact ‘ban-the-box’ and fair chance laws to protect applicants with arrest or conviction records from unlawful employment discrimination” said Leland. This product assists companies in abiding these laws.
