EEOC Issues Guidance on Considering Arrest and Conviction Records
Last week, the HRSentry blog covered the concepts of negligent hiring, retention and supervision. All three are based on the premise that an employer is responsible for exercising reasonable care in vetting candidates and overseeing its employees properly to prevent employment situations that result in harm to a third party. An example would be an employee with a history of violence, who then harms a customer or another employee, if the employer knew or should have known about the employee’s background.
