Are you applying for a new job and wondering what your future employer may check for? Hi, I’m Micah Longo, I’m a Florida employment lawyer practicing law here in Davie, Florida.
Hiring a new employee is an important decision. Employers sometimes want to find about about the person’s work history, education, criminal record, financial history, or use of social media.
Employers sometimes do civil litigation checks to examine the litigation attitudes of a prospective employee. Since, civil cases are public record, uncovering litigation history is fairly easy, especially today where most court dockets can be accessed online. The good news is that most employers understand that not all matters litigated have any bearing on a candidates ability to do the job.
Now, anytime an employer uses an employee’s background information to make an employment decision, they must comply with state and federal anti-discrimination laws. This includes discrimination based on race, color, national origin, sex, religion, or disability.
If you have questions about pre-employment background checks in Florida, or any other employment law matter, I invite you to pick up the phone and call me, I’d love to talk to you. Yo can also check out our website at longofirm.com for moe information, and don’t forget to subscribe to our channel.
