Background Checks & Risk Management

FEDERAL COMPLIANCE

Employers could be exposed to liability if a background check violates the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), Title VII, or other federal laws.

Our attorneys advise clients on how to gather the information they need while avoiding federal violations.

STATE & LOCAL LAWS

To make things more confusing, states, counties, and municipalities often have their own laws and ordinances that address hiring and background issues.

These include laws pertaining to drug testing, criminal records, and so-called “Ban the Box” laws.

This complex web of regulations can be especially daunting for employers with locations in multiple jurisdictions. McMahon Berger helps clients adapt their hiring practices to meet these often conflicting requirements.
