PeopleG2’s First Annual Human Resources Compliance Survey Reveals Widespread Confusion Among Executives Regarding …


According the first annual Human Resources Compliance Survey conducted
by leading human capital due diligence firm PeopleG2, the vast majority
of American executives believe their companies are compliant with Equal
Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) guidelines (94 percent),
however 72 percent of those surveyed ask job applicants about criminal
history in applications despite 2012 EEOC guidelines designed to reverse
the procedure.

“EEOC compliance is the number one issue we hear about from our clients,
and the findings of this survey don’t surprise me,” said Chris Dyer,
PeopleG2’s founder and CEO. “Most companies are still unaware that
questions about criminal history on job applications can be
discriminatory and that communication about criminal history should
arise as an open dialog much later in the decision-making stage of

In addition, more than 14 percent of respondents fail to offer any
opportunity to discuss the existence of criminal history in the
application process. However, the EEOC issued the new guidelines to
ensure that hiring entities consider whether the nature of a crime is
relevant to the job, whether skills necessary for the job could be
compromised based on the criminal history and whether time has elapsed
to allow for correction before a candidate is rejected.

“In order to make hiring decisions that are not discriminatory,
companies must consider candidates for their abilities and job fit
before factoring in other information that might impact his or her
work,” added Dyer. “Companies should ‘Ban the Box’ on applications that
automatically eliminates job applicants who have criminal histories and
consider the positive aspects of each candidate first.”
