Our partners at Quest Diagnostics sent the following information recently and we thought both topics were worthy of passing along.

Employers rely on accessible collection sites staffed by trained professionals to help their drug testing programs run smoothly from the start.

USCIS issued the following update: The Department of Justice, Civil Rights Division, Immigrant and Employee Rights Section (IER) released a redesigned version of its “Right to Work” poster. The redesigned poster offers information to prospective and current employees about the legal right to work in the U.S. and a law that protects legally-authorized workers from discrimination based on their citizenship status and national origin.

Question: Is it Risky for Employers to Look at Prospective Employee’s Social Media Profiles? Answer: Not if Utilizing a Compliant Social Media Screening Solution!

OPENonline 0 1371

The challenge in considering social media information in the hiring process, is knowing what information you can use to make hiring (and firing) decisions without running the risk of discrimination claims.  Broadly screening social media can be problematic because information found online can carry legal risk and may not even be true.  However, according to a recent research report by the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), 76% of companies said that they do use or are planning to use social media sites for recruiting. More than half of the employers responding said that social networking sites are an efficient way to recruit candidates.

Ban-The-Box Laws May Be Expanding into Higher Education Applications

OPENonline 0 1304

Ban-the-box may not stop at employment applications if a proposed piece of Colorado legislation passes.

The belief is that people with a criminal history often halt the college education application process when they are asked whether they have a criminal history – thinking they will automatically be barred from acceptance. The Colorado bill seeks to remove that barrier, so that individuals with a criminal history will follow through with their application, and hopefully be admitted.
