Lawful Hiring: Reduce the Risk of Government Investigations and Litigation

Employers must navigate an increasingly complex hiring minefield and in some cases conflicting laws that affect recruiting, hiring, and onboarding. Discrimination claims often arise in the hiring process. Claims can arise during background checks or drug tests. This topic will cover leading laws that regulate or affect the hiring process. This information will go beyond explaining the laws, and will give practical guidance on how to design and document selection and hiring procedures to reduce the risk of government investigations and litigation. Learn how to avoid pitfalls when running ads, asking interview questions, and what to include and review regarding applications, including how to handle criminal convictions. Learn about the use of background checks and the requirements of the FCRA, pre-employment drug testing, and more and ways to ensure you comply with the laws when using these options. Additionally, learn policies and onboarding procedures to protect the company after the hiring process is complete.
