  • Employers often create policies and procedures and then allow years to go by before they revise them, so they become outdated and out of compliance with current law. As the New Year begins, this is a great time to commit to reviewing and revising your policies to ensure they reflect your actual practices and are legally defensible. A good place to start is with your background check policy because this is a hot topic with the EEOC. In 2013, the EEOC sued Dollar General and BMW alleging the companies’ background check policies disparately impacted African Americans.
