Hiring Compliance for Recruiters

Don't let your recruiting practices get you into legal trouble.

Recruiters today must navigate an increasingly complex series of state and federal laws to keep their hiring practices compliant. From job postings and background checks to interviews and post-offer exams, the recruitment landscape is fraught with legal pitfalls. Further complicating matters, states are increasingly passing "ban the box" legislation that may ensnare unwary recruiters. This topic helps recruiters understand how to analyze their job postings for compliance with anti-discrimination laws and how to navigate various state "ban-the-box" laws. The material also simplifies and walks recruiters through the Fair Credit Reporting Act's (FCRA) seemingly complex background check procedures. Failure to comply with the FCRA is one of the most common and costly mistakes recruiters make. This topic will help recruiters avoid FCRA litigation and establish best practices. The information will also help recruiters prepare lawful interview questions by providing examples of what to ask, how to ask it, and why. Finally, this topic will address when post-offer medical exams, such as drug tests, are allowed and how they should be administered to avoid allegations of discrimination.
