Episode Notes

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission better known as the EEOC held a hearing last month to examine arrest and conviction records as a hiring barrier. The question today is whether employers’ hiring practices today can be considered discriminatory. Attorney and co-host Bob Ambrogi welcomes Attorney Charles H. Kaplan, a partner in Sedgwick LLP’s New York office, Attorney Maurice Emsellem, Policy Co-Director of the National Employment Law Project and Attorney Ray P. McClain, Director of the Employment Discrimination Project from the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, to explore the debate over background checks and applicants.  They look at the process of conducting criminal background checks on applicants, the responsibility of employers when hiring and how the hiring process can impact those with criminal histories.
