2020 has left a lasting affect on the United States, and the world. In one short year, we encountered a global pandemic, civil unrest, protests for equality and justice, and a change in political party control. These impacts have had a ripple effect on the background screening industry. The United States election season brought new laws relating to the treatment of marijuana and other drugs. Legislators continue to promote fair employment opportunities, leading to evolving obligations for employers during the hiring process. AccuSource recently hosted a webinar to highlight recent legislation and regulations that continue to shape compliance in employment screening.
Presented by Jennifer Daimon, Esq.| CIPM & CIPP/E – Director of Compliance and Chief Privacy Officer, the webinar discusses the impact of the 2020 election on marijuana and other controlled substances. It also addresses other restrictions such as Ban the Box laws, salary history bans, and expungement practices that continue to spread across the country, impacting hiring processes. The webinar also provides an overview of the new California Privacy Rights Act and its impact on affected employers. To conclude, the webinar highlights several areas to watch for the remainder of the year and into 2021 as well as important trends in background screening to consider in maintaining compliance programs.
