Introduction from the Editor
In this edition of our monthly e-newsletter, we discuss a case brought by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission against Kaplan Higher Education Corp., claiming it violated Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act by considering applicants� credit history in making an employment decision.
Our legal alert covers a former background investigator employed by United States Investigations Services (USIS) who recently pled guilty to falsification of work on background investigations of federal contractors and employees.
Finally, our tip of the month addresses the question so many employers have: will the applicant know a background checks is being done?
