Sterling Talent Solutions, the world's largest background screening company, has announced it is hosting a three-part webinar series on Employment Laws for Human Resources. With the ever-changing horizon of the background screening industry due to constant changes to federal and state legislation, Sterling has created this summer webinar series from July through September to help HR professionals understand a diverse range of employment [and background screening] compliance considerations. Topics to be discussed include discrimination in the workplace, adverse action and hiring non-U.S. citizen workers.

Each webinar will feature a subject matter expert from renowned law firm Seyfarth Shaw and participants are eligible to earn SHRM and HRCI continuing education credits.

“Our latest U.S. benchmarking report highlights that the second most important background screening challenge in 2017 is complying with the ever-changing screening laws,” said Lisa Singer, Chief Marketing Officer of Sterling. “This webinar series explores regulatory complexities such as discrimination in the workplace, adverse action requirements and hiring non U.S.-citizen workers and is designed to help companies navigate common hiring compliance concerns.”

These webinars have been approved for one SHRM credit hour each and have also been submitted to the HRCI for pre-approval. All attendees will have the opportunity for a live question and answer session with subject matter experts and will receive access to the on-demand version of this webinar.
