Did You Know?
If your business shops for insurance in the small group market (depending on the law of your state, this market covers groups of up to either 50 or 100 employees), unless you have a grandfathered plan (very few such plans remain), the next time you renew, you will see the effects of the “adjusted community rating” provision of the Affordable Care Act.
When hiring for an open position in your company, it’s important to find someone that not only has the skill sets needed, but also is an employee who can be trusted and will not jeopardize the physical or financial safety of the organization. A background check can help determine if a prospective employee meets the above criteria, which is a good thing. However, background checks can also ignite charges of discrimination if not utilized properly.
We recently published an article discussing employer background checks and the issues addressed by the EEOC with regard to discrimination. Since then, escalating accusations of discrimination as well as recent lawsuits have brought these concerns to the forefront of media forums for discussion.
