Baker & McKenzie’s U.S. Homeland Security Practice, Congressional Quarterly Inc., and the National Foreign Trade Council are proud to announce a series of Webinars on homeland security legal issues. Discussions will cover topics related to Homeland Security issues relevant to companies and how they conduct business.


Following the events of September 11, employers increasingly face new and more complicated issues in recruiting and managing their workforces. State and federal laws regulating  background checks must now be reconciled in light of increased investigative activities by federal and state law enforcement authorities and new guidance issued by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and other key agencies. Companies will face increased scrutiny of their employment practices and will likely need to take new or additional steps to remedy and protect employees and applicants from discrimination and harassment based on national origin, religion, race, and immigrant status. This session will address the practical and legal ramifications of recruiting and employing an increasingly diverse workforce.
