HUD Guidance and the Steps Background Screeners Can Take to Reduce FHA Liability
Track: Tenant Screening | Presenter: Joseph S. Messer, Messer Strickler LTD | In 2016, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) issued Guidance on the Application of Fair Housing Act (FHA) Standards to the Use Criminal Records. The Guidance states that landlords who uniformly deny housing to prospective tenants based on criminal histories discriminate against African Americans and Hispanics in violation of the FHA. The Guidance states that landlords cannot impose blanket restrictions against criminal convictions in the application process but must consider each conviction on a case-by-case basis factoring in information outside of the criminal record. At least one Federal District Court has held that background screeners can be liable under the FHA and have a duty not to sell products which could unwittingly cause its customers to violate the FHA. Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) Director nominee Rohit Chopra agrees, so the CFPB will likely regulate background screeners accordingly. Attend this webinar to learn the requirements of the HUD Guidance and steps you can take to reduce FHA liability when providing background screening for housing providers. | This webinar is sponsored by Berg Consulting Group.

Dropping Marijuana From Your Panel and Adding a Tool to Test for Recent Use
Track: Drug Screening | Presenter: Nina M. French, Hound Labs Inc. | As marijuana legalization continues to spread, employers are left wondering whether they can or should continue testing for marijuana. The simple answer is YES, but the new rules require new tools. Fortunately, there are now solutions and programs that make fair marijuana testing possible. Dropping cannabis from testing panels ignores the cost and consequences that are inevitable with the wide availability of one of the most used drugs in the United States. Since the first states legalized recreational marijuana use nearly a decade ago, some employers are considering taking this drastic measure because existing tools cannot distinguish between past use and use immediately before or during work and, therefore, might be required to fire an employee simply for legally and responsibly using cannabis. CRAs and TPAs, too, have struggled to provide a solution and in some cases have failed to understand the complexities that legalization causes. Marijuana testing technology paired with innovative continuous monitoring solutions provide a needed remedy for the dilemma of maintaining safety through continuing to test for marijuana while also being fair to employees who can now legally use cannabis. This session will review recent use versus past use, windows of cannabis detection, existing and new cannabis testing methodologies, and a modern approach to pre-employment testing for marijuana. | This webinar is sponsored by Berg Consulting Group.

Track: Business | Presenters: Vince Pascarella, Wholesale Screening Solutions Jon Groussman, Lowers Risk Group | Remember when the first big negligent hiring cases caused background screening to become a "must-have" for employers? Does the same concept apply to continuous monitoring of court and arrest records - if you could have known, you should have known? Is looking backward no longer enough when you can monitor in near real-time? We will discuss published negligent retention cases and settled negligent retention cases the presenters have had direct contact with. These cases share a very negative impact on an organization's brand, people, and profits.| This webinar is sponsored by Berg Consulting Group.
