SHRM Special Report on EEOC Criminal Background Check Guidance - May 8, 2012

On Wednesday, April 25, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) issued revised enforcement guidance on the consideration of arrest and conviction records in employment decisions under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.


To help HR professionals understand the new EEOC criminal background check guidance and its impact on employment, former EEOC Commissioner Leslie E. Silverman and the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) have provided a special report on the guidance and what employers should be doing to comply with it.
