|In this historically hot hiring market, its important for employers to ensure that their supervisory employees receive the legal training they need to conduct hiring practices. Supervisors who lack important legal knowledge can quite easily make mistakes (e.g., poor choice of words in a hiring interview) that evolve quickly legal claims by unsuccessful applicants, or competitors desperate to retain their employees.
This on-demand webinar provides basic training for supervisors with respect to:
- Discrimination & Retaliation: The most common legal claims made by unsuccessful job applicants.
- Hiring Interviews: How to avoid "smoking gun" comments or questions, unlawful medical inquiries, and how to phrase interview questions lawfully.
- Social Media Privacy Laws: Restrictions on requesting or requiring access to personal social media of applicants and employees.
- Criminal History of Job Applicants: "Ban the Box" laws, and "off limits" criminal history of job applicants.
- Job Classification Issues: Including benefits eligibility status, "exempt" versus "non-exempt," and "employee" versus "independent contractor."
- Hiring Employees of Competitors: California law on non-competition agreements, and protecting against trade secret misappropriation.
