    Meet at Goodfella's in Beaumont for an informative lunch-and-learn seminar and discussion concerning the recently issued EEOC enforcement guidance named "Consideration of Arrest and Conviction Records in Employment Decisions Under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964." 

    This seminar will focus on the recent guidance and how that may affect efforts by companies to use background checks as a hiring tool. 

    You will learn how to review background screening policies and practices in light of the new guidance; and learn how to make adjustments needed to the extent practices cannot be justified as job related and consistent with business necessity.  In addition, you will garner information about a wide variety of current legal issues as they relate to human resources and recruiting, such as credit checks, internet presence checks, job descriptions, new protected classifications, and other information to ensure you hire competent employees with good judgment, while still staying within the law.

    The seminar and lunch is being hosted by HT Staffing.  The special guest speaker is Robert Hambright of Orgain, Bell & Tucker, LLP., a general practice law firm with diverse areas of concentration.  Robert is Board Certified in Labor and Employment Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization and has defended over three hundred cases in the state and federal courts involving all aspects of labor and employment law.  Robert routinely defends employers in discrimination charges before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and the Texas Workforce Commission (TWC), handles cases before the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) and the Department of Labor (DOL), assists with collective bargaining negotiations and tries arbitration cases.  He also advises employer on litigation avoidance and prepares a full range of labor and employment policies and documents.
