Navigating the Labyrinth of Employment Regulations in the Hiring Process
Truckload Academy Live Learning Webinar
January 11, 2017
Topic: Human Resources and Recruitment
By: Driver iQ
This webinar provides 1 CE credit toward the TCA Human Resources or Recruitment Certificates.
Every year, motor carriers pay millions of dollars in fines for violating the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA). Others are facing costly litigation from the Equal Opportunity Employment Commission (EEOC) for alleged discrimination in hiring. Issues can also arise when the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) conducts audits to see if driver qualification files are complete. This webinar will help you navigate the confusing, complicated, and sometimes contradictory employment law landscape. We will cover how various federal regulations impact the hiring process, and what you should do to avoid legal missteps and the costly penalties that can accompany them. You will learn how to handle conviction records during the application process to be in compliance with the FCRA and the EEOC. Tips for making the hiring process a “user-friendly” experience for potential hires will also be presented.
During this webinar, free to TCA members, we will discuss how to re-evaluate your hiring processes in order to best avoid common compliance errors in a confusing, complicated, sometimes contradictory regulatory environment.
