Event Details

The construction industry labor market remains as tight as ever. Many employers are scrambling to fill positions. Part of this labor scramble involves the proper use of background checks. It also frequently involves navigating arrest and conviction record issues. The Wisconsin Supreme Court’s decision in Cree v. LIRC has refined the analysis employers must use and a court of appeals decision sheds some additional guidance on arrest record issues. This session will review and explain the current state of arrest and conviction record law in Wisconsin, and discuss the background check process and pitfalls, including a brief review of the FCRA (Fair Credit Reporting Act).
