Both the pre-hire and the post-hire employee screening processes are fraught with peril.  The NCUA generally prohibits a credit union from employing any person who has been convicted of (or has entered into any diversion or similar program for) any crime involving dishonesty, breach of trust, or money laundering.  Thus, the credit union must establish a pre-employment screening process that uncovers an applicant's convictions to ensure that only appropriate persons are selected for employment. 

In addition to being mandated by law, the pre-hire screening process can assist with hiring qualified applicants, reducing turnover, deterring fraud, and avoiding litigation.  There are many legal and compliance issues, such as the Fair Credit Reporting Act’s requirement to obtain the applicant’s consent before requesting a consumer report for employment purposes.  Therefore, to be effective and not violate any employee-protection laws, the credit union must establish written procedures for when employment screening should be used and for circumstances that warrant increased screening procedures based upon perceived risks.  This webinar will explain the proper way to conduct pre-hire and post-hire employment screening.
