Wayne, Pa.-based temporary services firm Crothall Services Group faces an EEOC lawsuit alleging it failed to maintain records necessary to document the effect of its criminal background check policy on minorities.

Title VII of the Civil Rights Act requires employers to maintain records that may indicate what impact, if any, hiring procedures have on minority applicants.

The EEOC claims that the company conducts criminal background checks and criminal background assessments in its hiring procedures. However, it does not maintain records to measure the minority impact of the background checks.

Note: The EEOC is looking into institutional bias against minorities and is making sure companies are monitoring their hiring procedures to ensure they don’t inadvertently filter out minorities.
