Foley & Foley, PC in the News

Employment Background Checks

Join Cape Cod Human Resources Association and Foley & Foley, PC on Thursday, May 23, 2024 @ 7:30a.m. at the Double Tree Inn by Hilton located at 287 Iyannough Road in Hyannis, MA for an overview of Employment Background Checks. Like many other employment laws, this law is highly contested and incredibly state-specific. On top of that, penalties for violations and litigation defense can be costly.

Attorney Wendy Hansen will be presenting the benefits and drawbacks to doing background checks, the different types of checks and their purpose and legal implications and restrictions for employers.
