Hello from the NAPBS 2015 Mid-Year Legislative & Regulatory Conference in Washington, D.C.! For those of you who are not familiar with this wonderful organization, NAPBS stands for National Association of Professional Background Screeners. Twice a year members of the EBI family get together with our peers to talk about ways to strengthen the background screening industry. It’s all part of our effort to better serve our customers.
Over the next few days there will be discussions on everything from battles with the EEOC to carefully following the letter of the law when it comes to the FCRA. On Wednesday a team will be heading to the hill to lobby lawmakers on matters that will help employers across the board. In the coming weeks look for more detailed blogs on the issues that might affect your hiring process. I’ll also be tweeting throughout the day. I hear the cherry blossoms are spectacular, and I’ll post a picture if I get outside. But for now, it’s back to the meeting rooms!
