All employers are impacted by the new EEOC Guidance that came out on April 25, 2012. While, some of the guidelines will take more time to implement, others can be implemented sooner. The EEOC Guidance states that employers should not ask about previous criminal history until an applicant is considered for a position and given an employment offer. For this reason, AccuSource recommends that employers remove the criminal history questions from their employment application. This is a good first step toward EEOC compliance.
