November 7, 2018, Gibbsboro, NJ — As the background screening industry for employers continually evolves based on new legislation and regulation, CSS is now offering its clients access to legal advice from one of the largest labor and employment law firms in the United States via its new service, CSS Compliance Plus. Littler Mendelson, P.C., with more than 1,500 attorneys, provides clients with representation and daily advice on virtually all areas of labor and employment law.
With states and locales establishing new legislation such as “ban the box”, “salary history ban” and other regulations geared towards the type of information that hiring employers can and cannot ask on applications, it has become critical that organizations have the resources to be regularly updated on these changes.
“Having a solid understanding of compliance and legal standards related to hiring procedures adds a level of protection to employers from wrongful hiring practice lawsuits, and also protects candidates as they pursue new employment opportunities,” says Mike Chalenski, CSS President and CEO. “We are excited to be able to offer our clients access to this level of advice to further strengthen their background screening programs, which ultimately can lead to a smoother hiring process.”
With the new CSS Compliance Plus service, clients will receive key benefits including: a dedicated attorney contact to keep them apprised of new regulations; reviews and recommendations to keep consent forms in compliance while following procedures and language aligned with the Fair Credit Reporting Act and other consent standards; privileged 50-state surveys on employer use of criminal and credit history information; bi-monthly case law updates; and an annual webinar focused on trending issues and updates.
CSS Compliance Plus is the newest offering in a suite of background screening services designed to provide convenience to employers in one centralized location. For additional details on CSS Compliance Plus, including eligibility, click here.
CSS Compliance Plus is only available to CSS customers, it is not available as a stand alone service. No attorney client relationship is formed until the CSS customer clears conflicts with Littler and the service may not be available to all CSS customers. This is not intended as attorney advertising. Interested customers should contact CSS directly for further details.
