How do you legally search for, interview, screen and hire employees? This advertising-to-onboarding ('A-to-O') guide will make sense of and keep your company compliant with all the laws that affect, and often impede, this process. This presentation offers 'best practices' for each of the steps along the way to bringing in a new hire.

Learning Objectives:

  • Properly (and legally) advertising your job openings.
  • How to mitigate your company's risk of potential hiring discrimination claims, negligent hiring and other violations.
  • Questions HR professionals can and cannot ask applicants at the interview stage.
  • Documents to present to the applicant during the hiring process including the wage notification form, confidentiality agreement and offer letter.
  • Hiring compliance issues such as background and reference checking, pre-employment drug testing (including recreational marijuana), specific job description duties and reasonable accommodations inquiries.
