Getting to Know Us
Advanced Reporting is more than your complete background screening solution. It is also a collection of staff members with varying backgrounds and interests. We’ll be introducing you to all of them over time, but we are starting with General Manager Elaine Rosenberg.
Advanced Reporting: What’s your story?
Elaine Rosenberg: Born and raised in Salem, Oregon, I ran all the way east to Yale University for college. Those were a great four years, and they helped me realize what a wonderful place Oregon is to live. Now I enjoy hiking, biking, kayaking, riding my horse, and a variety of other Pacific Northwest activities with my husband when I’m not busy at Advanced Reporting.
AR: What is your background and how did you get into the screening industry?
ER: I studied political science and the history of science and medicine in college. When I graduated I decided it was time to do something completely different.
Engaging with the EEOC Guidance
In April, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) issued new enforcement guidance on the use of arrest or conviction records in employment decisions. Since then, employers across the country have been tackling the unexpected task of engaging with the EEOC’s new stance.
The EEOC is tasked with enforcing Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as amended, specifically the prohibition again employment discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, or national origin.When it comes to an employer’s use of arrest or conviction records Title VII prohibits discrimination in the form of either Disparate Treatment or Disparate Impact.
