Webinar: Understanding the EEOC’s New Criminal Records Guidance: Education and Enforcement Opportunities

On April 25, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) issued a new enforcement guidance on the Consideration of Arrest and Conviction Records in Employment Decisions Under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The new guidance reaffirms the core principles present in earlier guidances, while updating and clarifying the EEOC standards regulating criminal background checks for employment. A New York Times editorial described the new guidance as “must reading for all employers.” Sponsored by the National Employment Law Project (NELP), Community Legal Services (CLS) of Philadelphia, and the National Reentry Resource Center, this webinar will provide advocates, workers, employers, workforce development specialists and policy makers with critical information on how to apply the new EEOC policy to their daily decisions when navigating criminal records for employment.

The webinar will feature a conversation between CLS's Managing Attorney, Sharon Dietrich, and Carol Miaskoff, Assistant Legal Counsel in the EEOC Office of Legal Counsel, as well as a discussion between NELP's Policy Co-Director, Maurice Emsellem, and Pamela Paulk, Vice President for Human Resources for the Johns Hopkins Health Systems and the Johns Hopkins Hospital. Phoebe Potter, Policy Analyst with the National Reentry Resource Center, will provide introductory comments describing the significance of the issue across constituency groups.

  In addition to detailing the key elements of the new EEOC guidance, the webinar will highlight best practices for employers, helpful implementation strategies for worker advocates, and key considerations for state and local policymakers to explore.
