“Ban the Box” legislation in the City of Rochester is the latest complication to the issue of background checks. As this part of the hiring process becomes more and more complicated, it is essential to have a thorough knowledge of how to balance the interests of business with fair hiring practices. Join us as Sharon Stiller, partner and director of the Employment Law Practice at Abrams Fensterman, LLP, discusses the new “Ban the Box” legislation in Rochester and answers questions including: when can you check an applicant’s background, when must you check an applicant’s background, and what can you do with the information once you obtain it?
