Hiring Policies and Procedures for Internal and External Applicants

 

Gain legal insight as well as practical tips and tools to apply to your business when hiring and onboarding candidates.

The laws surrounding hiring internal and external candidates are constantly changing, with an increased focus on what employers may or may not consider when hiring. Employers are often unsure of what is appropriate to ask or to evaluate when deciding whether to hire a potential candidate or what considerations could be unlawful. This topic will provide an overview of the legal framework to consider when hiring external applicants, including insight into job descriptions, advertising bias, background checks, ban the box and credit check laws, prior compensation questions, and drug testing. This information will also cover considerations when hiring or promoting internal or external candidates, so that employers are well equipped to develop a diverse workforce, retain top talent, and promote internally while mitigating risk. Employers will gain legal insight as well as practical tips and tools for employers to apply to their business when hiring and onboarding candidates.
